Enrolment to reach 14,000 students at the University of Regina

News Release Release Date: September 5, 2014 8:40 a.m.

Student enrolment at the University of Regina has reached a record high, increasing for the sixth consecutive year.

The University expects to exceed 14,000 students by the “Fall Census Date” in early October. This enrolment growth is accompanied by increases in the number of credit hours for which students are registered, which is up nearly five percent over 2013 among the ten faculties that make up the University of Regina.

“I am proud of the work we have done over the past several years to promote and accommodate a greater diversity of students on our campus,” said University of Regina President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Vianne Timmons. “Our investments in new and innovative programs – together with additional student supports and an emphasis on making a University of Regina education as accessible as possible for students from across Saskatchewan and around the globe – have helped us build a university that is more vibrant than ever before in its 40-year history.”

The steady increase in student enrolment over the last several years can be attributed to several factors, including an increase in the Aboriginal student population, an increase in the number of international students, expansion in the availability of online courses, new program development in areas like nursing, and student-focused initiatives like the UR Guarantee program.

More detail on enrolments will be available in October, including a breakdown of the number of Aboriginal and international students.
