In keeping with a trend of steady growth, the official 21-day count of student enrollment at Northern Arizona University shows increases in a number of categories over the previous spring.

Total enrollment for the spring 2014 semester is 24,407, a 1.5 percent increase over last spring. That number includes 17,763 on the Flagstaff campus.

A freshman class of 4,472 is 8.8 percent larger than the previous spring’s class. In the overall NAU population, students identifying as Hispanic/Latino increased 6.7 percent to 4,451.

Among NAU’s colleges, the College of Health and Human Services, with 3,070 students, had the largest percentage increase: 12.9 percent. The College of Engineering, Forestry and Natural Sciences is NAU’s largest, with 5,632 students.

Total graduate student enrollment declined, as is the case nationally, falling 6.6 percent to 3,664. The undergraduate population, however, increased 3.1 percent to 20,743.
