Eastern New Mexico University has set an all-time spring enrollment record with 4,864 students this semester, according to a news release from the university.

This is also the second-highest enrollment of any semester in school history, trailing only the 5,080 students last semester.

This spring’s enrollment is an increase of 11.6 percent over the previous record for a spring enrollment, set last year with 4,359 students, according to the release. Student credit hours, which higher education institutions funding is based on, increased by 7.9 percent over last spring.

“We are extremely satisfied with this year’s spring enrollment. The university enjoyed good retention from the fall semester and a large influx of new students,” said ENMU President Steven Gamble in the release.
