This is a list of the largest United States colleges and universities by enrollment.

What this list includes:

  • Colleges and universities within the United States
  • University systems if the system is run under a single administration
  • Enrollment is the sum of the headcount of undergraduate and graduate students
  • Enrollment is counted by the Integrated Post-secondary Education System within the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Enrollment is the 12-month unduplicated headcount, indicating the number of unique students who attended the university during the year.

What this list does not include:

  • Any indication of how many of the enrolled students are full or part time (e.g., some universities may have a high enrollment, but have most students enrolled in only a single class).
