FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Preliminary enrollment figures for the University of Arkansas show that the school has a record 26,301 students for the fall semester.

The school says the total is nearly a 4 percent increase from the fall 2013 enrollment - a rate of growth that university administrators said Wednesday is sustainable.

Since 2008, University of Arkansas enrollment has increased by 37 percent - 7,100 students. This growth trend led the Chronicle of Higher Education to rank the school as the seventh-fastest growing public research university in the U.S.

This fall’s freshman class of 4,579 students set a new record, too, according to the preliminary numbers.
