(Feb. 15, 2017) -- New census numbers released by the UTSA Office of Institutional Research show there are more than 500 students enrolled in spring classes at UTSA than there were a year ago.
Additionally, the number of postbaccalaureate, master's and doctoral students is on the rise for spring. About 4,400 UTSA students are pursuing post-baccalaureate or graduate degrees this semester, compared to about 4,100 during spring 2016.
While many UTSA students opt to begin classes in the fall semester, spring has provided an entry point for almost 2,000 first-time college students and transfer students. That's nearly 600 more new students than one year ago.

More than 5,800 COLFA students study in one of eleven academic areas, such as Art and Art History, Communications, Music, Political Science and Geography, or Sociology.
