Georgia Gwinnett College surpassed its 2011 spring semester enrollment goal of 5,500 students by more than 250, achieving a record enrollment of more than 5,700. This figure represents an increase of more than 2,300 students over last spring’s enrollment of about 3,400.

GGC continues an annual pattern of increasing enrollment from fall to spring semesters. Rarely does any institution within the University System of Georgia experience enrollment growth from fall to spring.

“The college continues growing dramatically,” said GGC President Daniel J. Kaufman. "Our current student body is almost 50 times larger than our original enrollment of 118 in 2006."

Starting this academic year, GGC has become the college of choice for Gwinnett students, Kaufman said. More Gwinnett County high school graduates attend Georgia Gwinnett College than any other institution.

The college expects more than 8,000 students for the 2011 fall semester.

The fall semester application deadline is June 17. Students wishing to enroll for the summer semester students must apply by April 1. For more information, visit www.ggc.edu.
