Austin Peay State University has eclipsed another enrollment record this fall semester.
A news release from the Clarksville School says figures for the fall period show an enrollment of 10,873 students—an all-time school record.
APSU also awarded its highest number of degrees on record during the last academic year, a 13-percent increase from the previous year. Degree completions have risen at Austin Peay by 25 percent over the last five years.
Figures show approximately 60 of those students who graduated last academic year completed the chemical engineering program, which was designed to accommodate the Hemlock Semi-Conductor class. Those students were the first class of such graduates.
