Summer enrollment increases at UNG

By Staff
DAHLONEGA - Preliminary figures show that the University of North Georgia (UNG) had a record enrollment for summer semester, with 5,853 students taking classes on the university's four campuses.<br /> <br /> The figure, while still an unofficial tally, represents a 1.1 percent increase over summer 2013 enrollment of 5,791 students.<br /> <br /> "The enrollment growth we continue to experience represents progress toward our goals of increasing educational opportunities and completion rates in the region," UNG President Bonita C. Jacobs said.<br /> <br /> In recent years, many public colleges and universities across Georgia have recorded declining enrollment, but UNG has recorded a trend of steady growth. Created in January 2013 from the consolidation of Gainesville State and North Georgia College & State University, UNG has experienced significant growth in the past decade. That growth has continued post-consolidation, with UNG's enrollment approaching 16,000 students in 2013.<br /> <br /> Meanwhile, UNG's admission deadline for fall 2014 has been extended for programs on the Gainesville Campus. Students may still apply for admission to associate or bachelor's degree programs at that location.<br />
