DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The University of North Texas spring enrollment figures show increases in the number of continuing students, the number of doctoral students, and the number of courses being taken by the student body, all of which indicate a continuing focus on graduation.

"The UNT student body continues to be focused on graduating, taking more semester credit hours so they can earn their degrees," said Elizabeth With, vice president for student affairs and enrollment management. "This spring, students have registered for more than 379,000 credit hours, a strong indicator that our students are working hard to complete their education."

This spring a total of 33,712 students are enrolled at UNT, compared to 33,715 in spring 2013.

UNT is one of the most diverse campuses in the nation, and the spring enrollment continues to show growth among all of UNT's populations. UNT's Hispanic student population grew to 6,146 compared with 5,821 students in spring 2013, an increase of 5.6 percent. A total of 4,613 African American students registered for classes compared to 4,398 in spring 2013, an increase of 4.9 percent. Asian/Pacific Island students grew to 2,204, compared to 2,080 in spring 2013, a 6 percent increase.

This spring, 1,780 students are pursuing their doctorates compared to 1,775 in spring 2013, making it a record enrollment of doctoral students for spring semesters. The continued record enrollment of doctoral students is important to the university's development as a major university. UNT continues to expand its excellence in science, engineering and technology while remaining committed to its mission of educating and graduating students.

Until the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board verifies enrollment numbers and makes them official later in the spring, all enrollment statistics are unofficial, 12th class day numbers.
