With a total enrollment of 8,676 for fall 2020, ULM increased its fall enrollment by 187 students over fall 2019.

The ULM family of faculty and staff diligently work to be second to none as we continue to support our students’ successes through a transformational process,” said ULM President Dr. Ronald Berry.
