UTPB welcomes its largest freshman class ever

The University of Texas Permian Basin‘s freshman class for fall 2022 is the university’s largest ever at 615 students.

That’s 10 percent higher than the previous high in fall 2020, according to the university, which added that overall enrollment is up 3.8 percent at 5,713 students.

“It’s so rewarding to welcome both the largest freshman class and the highest number of transfer students ever to the University,” UT Permian Basin President Dr. Sandra Woodley said in a statement. “The growth we are seeing at UTPB is the result of so many dedicated staff and faculty members who wake up every day focused on making UTPB the absolute best option for students. UT Permian Basin is the place to be. We are growing, transforming our campus, and continuing to serve our region. The best part is, it’s now more affordable than ever to earn a degree from UT Permian Basin, a world-renowned UT System institution.”
