No enrollment totals for 2014-2015 academic year[edit]

Error with 2011–2012 enrollment[edit]

Someone is screwing around with the Texas A&M enrollment, table needs to be fixed. Rauschpotato (talk) 00:21, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

NYU[edit]

NYU is not a single campus. It has never been a school with a single campus. It has many subdivisions in numerous nations London, Paris, Florence, Prague, Madrid, Berlin, Accra, Shanghai, and Buenos Aires. [4] It recently merged with Polytech which is located in Downtown Brooklyn. Polytech has at least 2800 students there. [5]. We should take a look at lowering some of the numbers because I'm 100% sure NYU used numbers from all of these campus' 208.120.47.96 (talk) 21:23, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

If there is a way to find the exact number for their main campus, then we should use it. i searched all over their site and couldn't find a campus by campus breakdown. I do know that NYU is the largest NPO private school in the US, so the number may be lower, but I am still sure it is the largest single campus. Dgreco (talk) 22 February 2009.

what is npo? at the very least you can subtract 2800 from the current total of 38,000. i guess we can find out what the current number of students in each location is. 208.120.47.96 (talk) 05:46, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Not-For-Profit Organization. Sorry. Dgreco (talk) 22 February 2009.

the virtual map shows that it is simply a bunch of buildings. http://www.nyu.edu/about/virtual.html this would be the closest to a campus. This link here [[6]] shows what is around the washington square park location.

  • Washington Square Center
  • College of Arts and Science/CAS (1832)
  • School of Law/LAW (1835)
  • Graduate School of Arts and Science/GSAS (1886)
  • Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development/ED (1890)
  • Leonard N. Stern School of Business/STERN (1900)
  • Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences/CIMS (1934)
  • School of Continuing and Professional Studies/SCPS (1934)
  • Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service/WAGNER (1938)
  • School of Social Work/ESSW (1960)
  • Tisch School of the Arts/TSOA (1965)
  • Gallatin School of Individualized Study/GAL (1972)

Which means that:

  • NYU School of Medicine (550 First Avenue)
  • David B. Kriser Dental Center (324 East 24th Street)
  • Institute of Fine Arts (1 East 78th Street)
  • New York University Midtown Center (11 West 42nd Street ), as well as Poly Tech are not there. If the numbers of eac of these other schools can be found. Than a more exact number can be found. 208.120.47.96 (talk) 05:56, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

alright, well with that being considered. i'll be adding Touro College 208.120.47.96 (talk) 20:07, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

NYU also has two very distinct areas Washington Square Park, New York and Union Square (New York City) which serve as student centers.[7] . This adds to its no "true" campus. 208.120.47.96 (talk) 09:28, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

If we were to keep NYU as is. What is really the difference between it and Touro College which as 23,651 students. [8]


i added touro college to the list 208.120.47.96 (talk) 09:16, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Aren't you (anon) arguing that NYU shouldn't be on the list because it has multiple campuses? But Touro also has multiple campuses so neither should be on the list. (Unless the enrollment of the Washington Square Park campus of NYU can be verified.) -Nicktalk 18:00, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

i'm saying its number should be lowered to basically its largest campus. the same can be done for touro. i have already made a list of the campus' . —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.120.47.96 (talk) 18:33, 1 March 2009 (UTC)


Start subtracting from Columbia University[edit]

map of columbia


[9]

medical center 3,231 total [10]

address 630 West 168th Street New York, NY 10032 [11]

40 blocks away.. so it is a different campus. so subtract 3,231 from original number. 208.120.47.96 (talk) 06:12, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Proposed Move[edit]

The page List of largest United States universities by enrollment (whose talk page redirects here by the way) appears to list both colleges and universities. I think that the name of the page should reflect this. Perhaps “List of largest United States colleges and universities by enrollment” GromXXVII (talk) 13:18, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

FSU[edit]

There have been some edits trying to list Florida State on this list. I don't know where all of the info is coming from, but the official standardized enrollment count for FSU in Fall of 2008 (which is what this table lists) is 38,682, thus it does not appear in the top 15. -Nicktalk 16:54, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

I've doubled checked FSU's enrollment numbers from their site and indeed they are not in the top 15. --Scpmarlins (talk) 07:31, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Fall 2009 enrollment[edit]

Here's the table from the main article. As you become aware of the fresh enrollment numbers from FALL 2009 put them into the correct spot (do what's necessary) and when it's completed we can put it in the main article.--Scpmarlins (talk) 22:01, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

(List is in same order to make it easier to edit for now)

List of schools updated:

  • University of Central Florida

Note - Ohio State is on the quarter system, so their 21st day enrollment figures probably won't be out for a few weeks. -Nicktalk 05:08, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Also Note: Refs for UCF and OSU contradict each other. News articles are not reporting UCF as one of the top five, but UCF's press release claims that it's third. -Nicktalk 02:31, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Grand Canyon[edit]

I'm a little suspicious of Grand Canyon University as the #10 spot. GCU is primarily an online school, but they have a small campus in Phoenix, AZ. I am positive that their total includes online students (which aren't counted in this list). I will look into it. -Nicktalk 00:11, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

I could not find a place to get exact numbers, but I think you may be right. I added them just for the time being since we definitely know Columbia isn't in the top 10. I also think there could be a few others we have missed, such as UPenn, Stanford, Northwestern, etc... I will continue to search though Dgreco (talk) 01:02, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

UCF[edit]

When you update for 2010 and 2011, put UCF as #2. See article: "The University of Central Florida has become the second-largest university in the nation in student enrollment, surpassing Ohio State."

UCF has eleven regional campuses, are you guys certain that the 53,000 student number only includes the Orlando campus? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Danwoodard (talkcontribs) 21:49, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

This is addressed by Note B in the respective sections. UCF does not release enrollment for the individual campuses.--Scpmarlins (talk) 23:08, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Liberty University[edit]

Liberty University does not belong on this list per this source, which is from the school itself:

Ohio State[edit]

I noticed in one of the sections it was referred to as "Ohio State University" and in another section it was referred to as "The Ohio State University." This is inconsistent. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.34.205.152 (talk) 14:39, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

I question the claim that the enrollment at OSU Columbus was identical in two consecutive years (12-13 & 13-14). That seems more likely to be an error or double report of the same statistic than an actual identical count (the exact number must be subject to chance variation (sickness, death, accidents, costs constraints, etc.) Since the links provided are NOT RELEVANT to the numbers reported here, I am unable to check this claim. (At least not quickly).Abitslow (talk) 00:18, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

2010 Enrollment Table[edit]

Another year, another table. The quarter schools should be reported by now. I'll put up a table later to start filling. In the mean time, here's OSU: http://www.osu.edu/news/newsitem2917, and here's ASU: http://asunews.asu.edu/20100909_enrollment samadam (talk) 21:24, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

The table for 2010-2011 academic year should be up shortly, I've been working on it for the past few days now. If you have any more links or information, please feel to post it here. --Nemesis63 (talk) 15:04, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Uniform sources[edit]

Shouldn't this wiki try to use the most uniform source available for any given university from one year to the next? The values currently in the tables seem a little wobbly. Did ASU really lose more than 10,000 students between 2013 and 2015? Also, where is the table for 2014-2015?

It seems that the Common Data Set should be the universal source for each university. If anyone disagrees, I would like to hear. Otherwise, someone can take the job of updating this, or I'm happy to do it myself when I can. AmericanNinja80 (talk) 21:33, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Extensions of Main University Campuses for Specific Schools, Colleges, or Departments[edit]

I think it's worth discussing that some universities have run out of space on their primary campuses, or in some cases just want to spread around their host cities a bit more, and have decided to move colleges into separate mini-campuses around their host cities. Texas A&M did this with their medical school, UCF did this with both their Hospitality and Medical Colleges, and schools like NYU have been this way for a long time. Although physically separate, these Universities consider these mini-campuses and their primary campus all part of their "Main Campus". Students generally take specific classes at these mini-campuses, but still take general education classes and some electives at the primary campus in each city. Should we start considering these factors when posting counts of enrollment? After all, these aren't the same as regional campuses that generally exist more than an hour away from a main campus and duplicate existing classes and majors offered elsewhere. Magicalbill (talk) 23:02, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

18-19 draft[edit]

Starting here in order to get it ready:

Things I discovered
  • We probably need to better specify/check that this is by single geographic campuses.
  • Georgia State claims 50K+ in this, but it appears to be from multiple campuses...haven't found a single campus readout yet. Sticking with these numbers for now based on what I could find. Most sources seem to site 30-35K @ main campus.
  • USF's placement on this list was based on the total of all 3 campuses, not just its largest in Tampa...
  • UF includes about 3K PaCE enrollments (have to manually exclude them from the count in the reference). We need to exclude these...virtual stuff complicates things...

We need to audit previous years to check for the same issues

Texas A&M Enrollment numbers 2014 and onwards include non-main-campus[edit]

As noted here: https://dars.tamu.edu/Data-and-Reports/Student/files/Overall_Enrollment_Historical.aspx "Beginning Fall 2014 includes out-of-state distance ed, Galveston campus, Health Science Center Campus, School of Law, Bush School Certificates and Qatar. Excludes ELI and late registrations and some study-abroad students. Unduplicated headcount as reported to IPEDS with the addition of Qatar."

The numbers shown here (69k+) are these inflated numbers and are therefore incorrect for the purposes of this topic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.113.155.176 (talk) 13:37, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

So, the Health Science Center is part of the main campus as is the Bush school. Galveston and Qatar are considered by Texas A&M to be part of their main campus (when students Graduate, their diplomas say "A&M College Station"). Distance education requires them to be enrolled in A&M in-person. Those that are out of state are there temporarily, not exclusively/permanently distance education (such as a study abroad program or medical situation). BUT the exact numbers + any clarifications should definitely be made and included or specific locations excluded. Buffs (talk) 15:05, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
