DALLAS (UNT), Texas -- On-site enrollment at the University of North Texas Dallas Campus is 1,258 students -- that makes 451 students in full-time equivalents (FTEs) for spring 2005.

This represents a 6 percent increase in headcount and a 9.5 percent increase in FTE enrollment (compared to spring 2004), bringing the campus a step closer to the UNT System's goal to establish the University of North Texas at Dallas.

Once the Dallas Campus enrollment reaches 1,000 full-time equivalent students, the UNT System can establish UNT at Dallas as an accredited, full-fledged, freestanding university and the first public university within the Dallas city limits. The Dallas Campus has been enrolling students for graduate and undergraduate classes and degree programs in southern Dallas since January 2000.

"This spring's numbers show our recruitment efforts are bringing growth in enrollment at the Dallas Campus as we move toward the establishment of the new university," said Dr. John Ellis Price, vice provost for the UNT Dallas Campus.

Last spring's on-site enrollment at the Dallas Campus was 1,186 students (accounting for 412 in full-time equivalents or FTEs).

Construction of the first building on the permanent site for UNT at Dallas is scheduled to begin in June. The schedule calls for classes to begin in the new building in January 2007. The new campus will be located on 264 acres of land located at Camp Wisdom and Houston School roads. Initial development of the land and construction of the first building for UNT at Dallas was made possible by state authorized bonds of $25.5 million in 2003.
