With 19,722 students enrolled across its five campuses and online in fall 2018, UNG grew 5% over fall 2017. UNG’s enrollment has increased about 45% since spring 2012, defying state and national trends. President Bonita Jacobs attributes the growth to the opportunities students find at UNG.
“Our increasing enrollment and the demand for our programs reflect UNG’s consistent national recognition as one of the best values in higher education and the commitment of our faculty and staff to educational excellence,” Jacobs said.
In the 2018 Best Colleges ranking by U.S. News & World Report, UNG was named among the nation’s most innovative universities and the top university in the South for students graduating with the least amount of debt.
