AHS attracts record number of students

Fall semester enrollment for the College of Applied Health Sciences is the highest ever, continuing an upward trend over the last five years.

Total campus enrollment also broke records at 30,539, the first time UIC has ever surpassed 30,000 students. The total freshmen class (4,064) exceeded 4,000 for the first time in UIC history.

“This year’s record enrollment for AHS, and the steady increase over recent years, are clear evidence of our upward trajectory,” said Dean Bo Fernhall.

“It demonstrates the excellence of our programs and the faculty, staff, students and alumni who work hard to make AHS great.”

Total enrollment for the college is 2,011 students, an increase over last year’s 1,943. This includes:
997 undergraduates (compared to 891 for fall 2016)
821 graduate students (864 in fall 2016)
193 professional students (188 in fall 2016).
