58 In Summary The state s two largest institutions (Texas A&M University and The University of Texas at Austin) have self-imposed enrollment caps. Public two-year colleges perform a key role in higher education. In Fall % of undergraduates were enrolled in a two-year college. 67% of the state s first-time college students were enrolled in a two-year college. Ninety-four percent of targeted enrollment growth in our region is expected to be at the two-year college level. ACC is: The higher education gateway for more than 50% of all freshmen. The ONLY higher education option for those first needing Adult or Developmental Education. Under-funded and needs help to meet these increased demands.
