Rapid enrollment growth beginning in the post-World War 2 era peaked in the early 1970s and was followed by an extended period of stable enrollment. Expanded access helped the U H system post modest overall gains from the early 1970s through the 1990s. Since fall 2000, enrollment has increased 12.9 percent and is projected to reach 56,000 by fall 2009.
