Enrollment up this year at University of Colorado Boulder, across CU system

AURORA — Enrollment at each of the University of Colorado’s campuses grew this year, according to preliminary numbers.

On the Boulder campus, 6,721 new freshmen enrolled this year, up 2.3 percent from last year. Of those students, 3,411 were from in state and 3,310 from out of state. Total enrollment on the Boulder campus, which includes undergraduate and graduate students, is 34,595.

“System-wide, all of our campuses have seen an increase in enrollment,” Todd Saliman, CU vice president of budget and finance and chief financial officer, said Friday during an enrollment presentation to the Board of Regents during the two-day, full board meeting at the Anschutz Medical Campus. “That is great news for the CU system, and that is not the story for every institution in the country or in the state.”

CU Boulder also welcomed its most diverse class, according to a news release, with 1,791 students, or 26.6 percent, who are under-represented ethnic and racial minorities in the new freshman class.

Boulder campus officials in a separate presentation to the regents noted that although the number of high school graduates is increasing in Colorado, it is not projected to stay that way. Kelly Fox, senior vice chancellor and chief financial officer, discussed projections that show the number plummeting in the mid 2020s.
