George Mason’s student enrollment has never been higher than it is right now. A total of 24,900 students are taking classes this semester, making it the university’s largest gathering of graduate and undergraduate students since 1996 when 24,368 were enrolled.
This current total is 1,492 students higher than George Mason’s fall 2000 enrollment, making it, in terms of headcount, the fourth largest single-year increase in the institution’s history going back to 1968.
Student enrollment has been a major source of discussion between George Mason and the General Assembly. Mason has been designated as one of three institutions of higher learning in Virginia to experience the greatest amount of student growth over the next decade. In the university’s Plan 2007, officials are projecting student enrollment to climb to 30,000.
