The Texas Tech University System (TTU System) set a new enrollment record with 63,612 students enrolled for the 2023-24 academic year across the system’s five component universities, Texas Tech University (TTU), Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC), Angelo State University (ASU), Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) and Midwestern State University (MSU Texas).

The previous record of 63,498 students was recorded during the 2021-22 academic year, which marked the system’s first year with five component institutions following the addition of MSU Texas on Sept. 1, 2021.

“Setting enrollment records at the collective system level — or at the institutional level — is bucking the trend across the higher-education landscape in the U.S.,” said Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D., chancellor of the TTU System. “I applaud each of our universities and leadership teams for their continued focus on strategic enrollment and retention efforts. I also am proud of our institutions’ dedication to growing a values-based culture that makes each of our campuses a sought-after destination for both in-person and distance education students.”
