Kettering College Breaks Enrollment Records
Story by Mindy Claggett
Kettering College faculty, staff and students kick off the school year with a convocation.
With a total of 938 students enrolled for the fall semester, Kettering College has posted its highest opening enrollment in the 44-year history of the school. The number eclipses the previous high of 917 that was set at the start of the 2010-11 school year. This is the fourth consecutive year that the Kettering, Ohio-based college has topped its previous best opening enrollment numbers.
According to the school’s final opening report released last week, 545 full-time and 393 part-time (three-quarter-time or less) students registered for fall classes, for an overall count that was 21 more than in 2010.
“Our enrollment goes up because our graduates are happy with their education—and the word gets out,” said Charles Scriven, PhD, college president. “Obviously, we can’t discount the current economy as a factor, but the bottom line is the quality education that our students receive here.”
Kettering College had 510 students at the start of the 2000-01 academic year—the same year Scriven was hired. Since then, the school has jumped 46 percent in total enrollment and 45 percent in total credit hours.
