The University of Delaware broke its enrollment record for the second consecutive year. The college surpassed 24,000 students for the first time.
Out of that total, UD enrolled 7,534 Delawareans, the most in over a decade; 3,729 underrepresented minority students, up from 3,587 last fall; and a record 2,246 international students, further evidence of UD’s global reputation for research.
These undergraduates include 3,972 domestic students of color, 21.8 percent of the enrollment, up from 3,907 last fall. Among Delaware residents, the progress is more pronounced, increasing 25 percent over the last five years, from 1,709 students of color in fall 2014 to 2,143 students in fall 2018.
