Rochester University achieved a record enrollment in fall 2020 despite the challenges of a pandemic and predictions of a national decrease in college enrollment. 

Initial statistics show an enrollment increase of 13% compared to the previous fall, and for the first time in the institution’s history, RU’s overall student headcount was more than 1,200, which includes traditional, accelerated and early college students, President Brian Stogner said.

Stogner said. “I am thankful to the entire RU campus community for its hard work in ensuring a quality educational environment in the midst of these uncertain times.”

Samuels attributed part of RU’s enrollment success to the RU Pledge Loan Repayment Assistance Program, which helps graduates, beginning with freshmen in the fall 2020 class, to repay student loans.
