Enrollment at ACU hits new record high

For immediate release
Sept. 8, 2004

More students enrolled at Abilene Christian University this year than ever before in the school's history, said president Dr. Royce Money.

According to the official 12th-day enrollment count, ACU enrolled 4,786 students from 47 states and 66 nations. Those students are taking a record 63,435 semester credit hours.

The headcount enrollment topped the previous school record of 4,761 (in 2000-01) and represents an increase of 111 students from last year's total. 

Strong retention and a large entering class combined to make this year's enrollment a record high, said Jack Rich, executive vice president.  More than 1,000 new freshmen began at ACU this fall.

"Seeing our enrollment reach new levels is exciting and inspiring," Rich said. "We're pleased to have this many students on campus taking advantage of an ACU education."

This year's record enrollment reflects the attractiveness of ACU's distinctive educational experience, Money said.

"ACU offers something that many students are looking for – high quality academics with a serious Christian focus," Money said.

The total enrollment number includes 554 graduate students and 4,232 undergraduates.
