From the University System of Georgia

The University System of Georgia's (USG) fall 2010 enrollment has climbed to 311,442 students, yet another record high.

That's an increase of 9,550 students, or 3.2 percent, over the fall 2009 enrollment, which at the time was the record.

While this year's increase of 3.2 percent is smaller than the 6.7 percent jump (18,914 students) from fall 2008 to fall 2009, it tracks the annual percentage increases seen over recent years: 2.5 percent from fall 2005 to fall 2006, 3.9 percent from fall 2006 to fall 2007; and 4.8 percent from fall 2007 to fall 2008. The average percentage increase over the 2006-2010 period is almost 4 percent.
