SUU Enrollment Growth at 8.2%, Outpacing Other State Universities

October 29, 20211 min read

Southern Utah University’s student population now exceeds 13,000, a new record for the university. According to third-week enrollment data released by the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE), SUU grew at a faster rate than every other degree-granting public university in the state.

“These growth figures represent the hard work of a dedicated team at SUU. Faculty, staff, administration and students all have a hand in our strategic growth plan,” said SUU Interim President Mindy Benson. “This past year has been especially challenging because of the on-going impact of COVID and a housing shortage in Cedar City and throughout the state. To achieve this level of growth is really a testament to our university community.”

The bulk of SUU’s growth came from a 42% increase in the university’s online degree program. Online students now represent nearly 16% of SUU’s 13,611 students. The commitment to high quality, affordable online degrees gives students from across the world the opportunity to study at Southern Utah University.
