Fall 2019 Enrollment

The 2019-20 school year has begun, and Oklahoma Panhandle State University has welcomed its largest freshman class for the third year in a row.

Panhandle State has established itself as the fastest growing university in the region, with enrollment numbers continuing to trend upward for the Fall 2019 semester. For the preliminary count this fall, the university grew 2% in headcount and 4% in credit hours from Fall 2018. That is a 12% increase since 2017. Online applications have also increased markedly this semester by a solid ten percent.

“Our success has been a total team effort,” said Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs, Dr. Julie Dinger. “The whole Aggie family worked together to bring the class of 2023 to campus, now we are moving our focus to connecting these students to experiences and programs that will improve their success,” she added. “It is an honor to serve our students with this these people.”

Panhandle State’s work on enrollment management initiative, coupled with the dedicated hard work of the faculty and staff, as well as the numerous campus-wide academic and facility improvements to benefit students has led to Panhandle State University being ranked No. 28 by U.S. News and World Report in the Best Colleges of 2019, Regional Universities West division after being unranked for more than a decade.

“We have continued our move to sustainability by being steadfast in our mission of meeting people where they are in life and helping them go where they want to go, and be who they want to be,” said University President, Dr. Tim Faltyn. “This ranking says that people are more and more interested in our story. I can’t wait to work with our team to write the next chapter of our success.”
