 Date published: Monday, Oct. 15

UD MallThe University of Dallas is proud to announce another year of record-breaking undergraduate enrollment of 1,471 students. Record freshman classes within five of the last seven years have contributed to this milestone. The Class of 2022, comprised of nearly 380 students, is one of the university’s largest entering classes in its more than 60-year history.

“I'm pleased to see UD's enrollment climb to another all-time high,” said Assistant Vice President of Enrollment and Undergraduate Admissions Elizabeth Griffin Smith. “This year's freshman class maintains the university’s high academic standards set by last year's record-breaking freshman class. Combined with favorable retention and the continued success of our graduate programs in business, liberal arts and ministry, UD's influence will only continue to grow as our student body remains strong."

Graduate enrollment across the Ann & Joe O. Neuhoff School of Ministry, Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts and Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business also rose steadily over the last two years.

The University of Dallas was recently named to "America's Top Colleges" by Forbes magazine, the "Best Colleges for Your Money" by Money magazine and the 2019 edition of The Princeton Review's popular guidebook "The Best 384 Colleges.”
