The University of Alabama at Huntsville has reached a new high in its number of enrolled students, meeting a longtime goal of the university administration.
There are now 10,000 students enrolled at UAH, an increase of 36% since 2014.
According to the university, this year’s freshman class has just over 1,300 students. AL.com reports over half the class obtained perfect grade point averages of 4.0 in high school with an average of 3.88, and nearly 40% scored a 30 or higher on the ACT.
University officials say the Brookings Institution found the economic outcome of its graduates to be the best in the state among public schools. UAH is also ranked the best value college in Alabama by SmartAsset.com.
