VICTORIA - The University of Houston-Victoria is rated third in the nation in student enrollment growth, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education. The ranking is based on data from the U.S. Department of Education, which includes total head count of full- and part-time students.
From 2000 to 2010, the enrollment grew 141.2 percent. Much of the growth occurred during the five years from 2006 to 2011, with a 63 percent increase in student enrollment.
To accommodate growth, two dormitories opened and ground has broken on a third, Jaguar Suites. This is also the first semester UHV is offering a shuttle service for students living in the dorm in response to traffic and safety concerns.
Among the top 20 universities on the list, eight were other Texas schools with UHV ranking the highest of those. It beat enrollment growth rates at University of Texas and Texas A&M extension campuses.
