Enrollment (Total, % Full-Time, % Part-Time)

Many students underestimate the importance of the size of the undergraduate student body at their prospective colleges.

What would be your experience at a school like St. John’s (NM) with an enrollment of less than 400 students vs. Santa Clara with roughly 5,800 students vs. Ohio State with more than 42,000 students? Whether you wish to attend a small, mid-size, or large school is a critical question to wrestle with early on in the college search process. A small school can offer a more intimate academic experience and more opportunities for hands-on learning. A larger school possesses the allure of big-time athletics, a huge alumni base, and an endless assortment of course offerings and majors. Deciding which best suits your personality and unique interests is a crucial step in finding a “good fit” school. Our sortable database of enrollment by institution will make the process of exploring colleges with your chosen size parameters more convenient.

*Data collected from each institution’s Common Data Set and indicates enrollment for the 2021-22 academic year, the most recent year for which data is made available.
