ULM highlights enrollment increases, including largest ever Honors Program enrollment

University of Louisiana at Monroe

The University of Louisiana Monroe is celebrating a number of enrollment increases in key areas at the beginning of the 2023-2024 academic year. The university saw a 4% increase in First Time Freshmen, a 4% increase in transfer students, and a 10% increase in Dual Enrollment students. Overall enrollment is up 62 total students compared to fall 2022.

The ULM Honors Program is celebrating an overall enrollment increase of 38%. A total of 132 freshmen joined the program this year, making it the largest-ever freshman class for the program.

The inaugural cohort of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program launched this semester with 49 students enrolled. Additionally, the Doctor of Education program has a total of 252 students enrolled, the largest number to date. The online Ed. D. program includes students from all over the U.S. and is one of the few of its kind in the state.

“Overall, the enrollment increase demonstrates the hard work of several dedicated staff and faculty that are dedicated to meeting our students’ needs,” said Dr. Mark Arant, ULM Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs. “The staff in Recruitment and Admissions worked incredibly hard this year to be successful. Because we are seeing increases through both new and recently innovated programs, ULM is making the case for the relevancy of a college degree by remaining diligent in our offerings,” added Arant.
