Fall Enrollment Sets Record

Atlanta Christian College this fall saw its largest enrollment in the history of the College, with 456 students enrolled in traditional and adult degree programs. The record enrollment marks a more than 15 percent increase from one year ago.

“We’re honored that students are increasingly turning to Atlanta Christian College for a quality Christian higher education,” said Dean Collins, a 1979 graduate and the College’s interim president. “We expect this enrollment trend to continue in the future, and know that our plans to relocate our main campus will help us accommodate further growth.”

Contributing to the increase in enrollment was the College’s new Access program for adult and professional studies. Students in this program may earn an associate or bachelor’s degree in as little as 18-24 months. Currently, the program offers adult students the opportunity to study Christian ministries, organizational leadership or counseling and human services; in February 2009, the program will expand to include an early childhood education degree.

“When we developed our Access program, we believed there was a need in Atlanta for a quality faith-based adult education program, and we have been thrilled with the initial response,” said Collins. “The number of applications for this program far exceeds our expectations, and validates our assumptions about the need for this program in our market.”
