Sacramento State continues to be a popular destination for college students. The total head count for Spring 2012 was 26,543 students. The total exceeded the University’s enrollment target by about 3 percent.

The student population continues to diversify. The number of students who describe their ethnicity as “other” or “mixed” is up 11 percent. The Hispanic population rose 9 percent, and the African American number grew by 0.5 percent.

“Not only are we seeing increased applications for admission from both the greater Sacramento region and other areas of the state, such as the Bay Area and Southern California, but more students who stepped out in the past are expressing interest in returning to complete their degrees,” says Ed Mills, associate vice president for Student Affairs, Enrollment and Student Support.
