About Lamar University

Lamar University is classified as a doctoral-granting research university. This very large four-year institution has an estimated annual full-time enrollment of 3,000 to 9,999 students. Approximately half of degree-seeking students are enrolled full time, and fewer than 25% of undergraduates reside on campus. This institution awards a balanced number of bachelor’s degrees in both the arts and sciences and the professional fields. Graduate degrees are available in up to half of the fields available to undergraduate majors, and the school awards research doctorate degrees in a variety of fields. Most of these graduate degrees are awarded in professional fields other than engineering, such as education, health professions, social work, or public policy. According to data for fall enrollment, 60-79% of undergraduates are full time students. Enrollment data shows that both graduates and undergraduates are enrolled at this institution, with only 10-24% of students enrolled in the graduate program.
