Chronicle of Higher Ed Names TAMIU Fourth

The Chronicle of Higher Education has named Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) among the nation’s fastest-growing public master’s institutions in its “Almanac of Higher Education 2013.”

TAMIU was named fourth in the nation in recognition of its 108.6% enrollment growth.  Of the 20 fastest growing public research campuses, six were in Texas. TAMIU was the only A&M campus included in the public master’s institutions category. Other A&M campuses ranking in other categories included TAMU-Kingsville and TAMU-Commerce.

The survey tracked enrollment growth at each institution from 2001 to 2011 and was based on total head count of full and part-time undergraduate and graduate students.

Last Fall, TAMIU’s enrollment was 7,213 with 6,384 students undergraduates and 829 graduate/doctoral.

Fall 2013 classes at TAMIU begin Wednesday, Aug. 28.
