UACCH Celebrates 20% Spring to Fall Growth in Enrollment
September 6, 2012
The University of Arkansas Community College at Hope is celebrating a 20 percent growth in enrollment from the spring 2012. The 1505 enrollment is only the second time in the history of the institution that a 1500 headcount in enrollment has been surpassed. This enrollment symbolizes the benefit of two campuses working together with one mission — to help students achieve their educational goals. UACCH Chancellor Chris Thomason said, “We are pleased with the enrollment growth from the Spring Semester. The opening of the Miller County campus has played a role in this growth and demonstrates the potential that the two campuses will have on the entire region by broadened accessibility to a quality, affordable education.”
With almost a 9 percent overall increase in the number of area high school graduates enrolled, the college is pleased to be a resource for traditional and non-traditional students. Miller County enrollment has exceeded all expectations at UACCH-Texarkana. Records show that 27% of Genoa’s 2012 seniors and 45% of Fouke’s 2012 seniors, 24% of Trinity Christian Seniors, and 12% of Arkansas High 2012 seniors have enrolled at UACCH-Texarkana this fall semester. That is a significant increase from the previous year’s enrollment.
The College is focused on the students and helping them to achieve their educational goals. Whether out of high school or returning to college from the workforce, all students have a place on the UACCH and UACCH-Texarkana Campuses.
