UACCM Sets Enrollment Record

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton reported an enrollment of 1,814 students for the fall 2007 semester on the 11th class day, the deadline for public institutions to report their enrollments to the Arkansas Department of Higher Education. 
This represents an increase of two percent from the fall 2006 semester. Additionally, this is the first time in the school’s history that more than 1,800 students have been enrolled. Since UACCM became a two-year college in 1991, overall enrollment has increased 300 percent, and has also seen an increase of 41 percent since merging with the University of Arkansas System in 2001. 
Conway County students account for 22 percent of enrollment at UACCM. In addition, 40 percent from Faulkner County, 5 percent from Perry County, 16 percent from Pope County, 7 percent from Van Buren County, 5 percent from Yell County, and 5 percent from all other counties. 
Of the 1,814 students, 45 percent are pursuing Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees, and 46 percent are enrolled in technical, business, health, and service-related occupational programs. The remaining 9 percent are non-degree seeking students, undeclared majors, and concurrently enrolled high school students. 
The Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) rate increased from 1314 in the fall 2006 semester to 1373 in the fall 2007 semester as well. A higher FTE rate means that students are taking more credit hours on average.  
The significant increase in enrollment in recent years can be attributed to an expansion in available programs of study at UACCM and an increased interest in programs focusing on some of the fastest growing industries in the state such as Petroleum Technology and Nursing.
