Enrollment

To meet the terms of Virginia’s Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2011, the Board approved a plan to enroll 1,673 new undergraduates by the 2018-19 academic year, an increase of 11.9% from 2010-11. Of these, 1,171 students (70%) will be Virginians.

As of fall 2012, there were an additional 144 Virginia undergraduates on Grounds. To serve these additional students, the University must add faculty to maintain a 16:1 student-faculty ratio and sustain its reputation for close student-faculty interaction.
