UACCM Sees 18% Growth, with Fall Enrollment Exceeding 2,200

 


The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton (UACCM) has reported a preliminary fall enrollment of 2,229 students, Chancellor Lisa Willenberg announced today.

“It’s a great time to be a part of UACCM,” Willenberg said. “I am so grateful to everyone for their parts in recruiting, enrolling, and retaining students.”

The 2,229 students represent an 18% growth from last fall’s 1,888 students. The fall mark of 2,229 also serves as the highest reported fall enrollment since 2012.

Willenberg noted that in addition to the 18% increase in headcount, UACCM had a 12% increase in student semester credit hours (SSCH), which is the number of credit hours in which students are enrolled. The total number of credit hours students take is important because it drives the tuition and fee revenue.

“One of the biggest factors in our current enrollment figures are concurrent students,” Willenberg said. “These students desire more options and flexibility in their education. Our partnerships with various high schools and four-year universities in the area are making that a reality.”

In July, UACCM and Greenbrier High School launched the Greenbrier High School-UACCM Core+ Impact Academy Partnership, which expanded on the previous concurrent enrollment opportunities for Greenbrier.
