Enrollment at CLU stands at an all-time high of 2,804 undergraduates and 1,401 graduate students. Overall, that’s more than a 100-student increase from last year, including jumps in the numbers of undergraduate transfer students and international students.
“When it really came down to it, I had to think about what was going to be the right fit for me,” said Gurpreet Sahan, who transferred from Moorpark College to major in psychology.
CLU admitted 264 transfer students this fall, up eight percent from last year and 57 percent from four years ago. More than a quarter (27 percent) of the traditional undergraduates currently studying at CLU arrived on campus as transfers.
Including all undergraduate and graduate programs, one in nine CLU students today is a citizen of another country.
Even as CLU attracts more students, it is accepting a smaller percentage of undergraduates (44 percent) and climbing in the closely watched U.S. News & World Report college rankings. This year the University leaped four spots to 14th among regional universities in 15 Western states.
