Following the final fee payment purge for the fall 2011 semester, Clayton State University Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management & Academic Success Dr. Mark F. Daddona has announced that the University has set a new (albeit unofficial at the moment) enrollment record of 6,889. Clayton State’s previous single semester enrollment high was 6,785, for the spring 2011 semester.
According to Daddona, the University’s enrollment target for the fall 2011 semester was 6,801, which would have been a 3 percent increase over the fall 2010 enrollment of 6,603. As it now stands – the official enrollment figure will be released by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia later this year -- enrollment increased 4.3 percent from the fall of 2010.
“We will also experience minor adjustments over the next week due to no shows and reinstatements,” he adds.
Clayton State enrollment figures for the last four semesters are as follows; with the spring 2010, spring 2011, and fall 2011 enrollments all marking single-semester records for the University.
Spring 2010 – 6,687
Fall 2010 – 6,603
Spring 2011 – 6,785
Fall 2011 – 6,889
“This has been a long registration and orientation period that started last April,” comments Daddona in an email to the Clayton State campus.” We could have never been this successful without the long hours, teamwork, and support of many members of the Clayton State community!”
