Univ. of Georgia on pace for record enrollment

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The University of Georgia is on pace for a record enrollment this fall.

Officials say final numbers are not yet in, but the preliminary numbers could eclipse last year's final fall semester enrollment of 34,536 and the 2009 record enrollment of 34,885.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports (bit.ly/1v0bZeW) that as of Sept. 9, the university's combined graduate, professional and undergraduate enrollment was 34,988. That number includes students at the Athens campus plus more than 1,000 students on UGA campuses in Tifton, Griffin, Lawrenceville and Atlanta.

School officials say that number typically fluctuates before final figures are in. In past years, the number has climbed as students who have missed tuition payments make arrangements to remain enrolled.
