Bookmark and Share

Alabama A&M University’s enrollment is 6,108 for fall 2018, an increase of nearly 1.7 percent over fall 2017 and a 25.83 percent increase since fall 2012.  The fall 2018 enrollment is the largest since 2005.  This year marks six consecutive years of enrollment growth at the University.  


“I am so pleased that Alabama A&M University is the institution of choice for individuals desiring a quality and affordable education,” commented University President Andrew Hugine, Jr. “The trajectory of our enrollment is due to the dedication of our enrollment management teams in the offices of Admissions, Graduate Studies, and other support areas, a significant increase in student success initiatives, and a campus-wide commitment to access and opportunity.”    


The first-time freshman headcount for fall 2018 is the second highest in the history of the University at 1,521 compared to 1,447 for fall 2017, an increase of 4.9 percent. The average Composite Index Score for first-time freshmen increased from 20.33 in fall 2014 to 20.84 in fall 2018.  The average GPA is 3.01, the highest in five years.   Of the 1,521 freshman students this fall, 893 are females (59%) and 628 are males (41%).  


The President also noted that enrollment increases were impacted by enhanced marketing efforts, including the annual AAMU Scholarship Recognition and Promotional Tour, which encompasses numerous high schools in cities and towns throughout the state of Alabama; construction of a 580-bed state-of-the-art residence hall; and high-quality academic programs.
