Enrollment figures for the spring 2011 semester have been calculated with King College
maintaining high overall student enrollment from the fall semester and a new record
for spring enrollment. The current statistics show that 1,833 students have registered
for classes at the College's Bristol, Tennessee campus, and the College's dozen instructional
sites located throughout East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. This number is a
13% increase over the spring 2010 semester.
In addition to setting a new record for spring enrollment, King retained 94% of the
undergraduate student population enrolled during the fall 2010 semester.
Micah Crews, associate vice president of enrollment management, attributes the increased
retention and enrollment to the creation of innovative programs and a focus on accessibility.
We want to provide traditional students and working adults with the tools they need
to advance, said Crews. Combined with our efforts to bring the quality of a King
degree to instructional locations around the region, this commitment to our students
has generated over a decade of enthusiastic response.
It is our goal to support the educational and economic development initiatives of
the region, and it has been proven time and again that making higher education affordable,
as well as accessible, is key to this process, said Crews. Our students benefit from
the continuing tradition of King's core values. A King College education integrates
studies in their chosen field, opportunities to study abroad, and commitments to responsible
service and stewardship.
Since 2005, the overall student body at King has more than doubled in large part due
to the increase in the number of adult learners enrolled in the College's graduate
and professional studies programs. These adult-oriented programs include the Bachelor
of Business Administration, Bachelor of Information Technology, Bachelor of Science
in Nursing for Registered Nurses, Master of Science in Nursing, Master of Education,
and Master of Business Administration degree programs, for which King also offers
a healthcare specialization.
King College's growth is benefiting our region in several ways, said LeAnn Hughes,
vice president of marketing and development. From Richlands to Knoxville, we are
significantly impacting the adult population of the region by giving them access to
affordable, high quality degree programs that fit into their schedules. These adults
are staying in the region, contributing to the economy, and raising the caliber of
the workforce. In turn, this benefits the region's current employers and helps attract
new businesses to our area.
For the 21st consecutive year, U.S. News World Report has recognized King as one
of the best colleges in the nation. The Princeton Review has awarded King a Best
in the Southeast designation for a seventh consecutive year. King has also been selected
for a second year by G.I. Jobs as a Military Friendly School.
