As of Sept. 21, 24,146 students were enrolled at Kansas State University. The number is 620 fewer students than in fall 2014. Only Human Ecology, Architecture, Planning & Design and Engineering experienced an increase in the number of students this fall.

Human Ecology numbers show:

  • 2,708 undergraduate students,

Domestic multicultural students account for 15 percent of the student population, also a university record and a steady increase from 14.5 percent in 2014 and 13.8 percent in 2013. The largest increase is among students who identify as Hispanic.

The university and Human Ecology are seeing growth in the number of doctoral students. For the fall 2015 semester, there are 1,120 university students enrolled in a doctoral program, up from 1,073 students in 2014.
