Biographical/Historical Note

Records of enrollment at the Georgia Institute of Technology have been kept since the early years of the school's history. The enrollment at Tech during the first academic year was 129; 60 students graduated between 1890 and 1895. By the 1904-1905 academic year, enrollment had increased to 511 students. Another growth period occurred during the first twenty years of the twentieth century, so that by October 1920, the student body numbered more than 2,400. Following World War II the number of full-time students had increased to 5,000. After some declines in enrollment in the late 1960s and early 1970s, increases occurred again, reaching 11,393 students in 1982. By 2001, the total number of graduate and undergraduate students had reached 15,576.
