Morgan State University had the highest number of students enroll at its historically Black institution this fall. University officials attribute the campus’ infrastructure redevelopment and branding as main draws to new students. For the past two years, the university recorded back-to-back historic enrollment figures. Enrollment surpassed 9,101 students this year and 8,469 in 2021 — a 7.5% increase that puts the university ahead of its goal of enrolling 10,000 students by 2030. Though many might assume that freshman students are the main contributor to the enrollment increase, it’s actually transfer and out-of-state students. Among the new students enrolled at Morgan for the current academic year, 56% are from beyond Maryland’s borders — the largest out-of-state student population in school history, according to officials.
