Enrollment at Highest in ACCC History
ACCC’s fall 2007 enrollment is the largest in its 41-year history. The number of students overall rose to 6,929 from last year’s 6,828, a 1.48 percent increase. The number of full-time students rose to 3,404, an increase of 5.7 percent, while part-time enrollment is 3,525, down 2.2 percent.
“This increase in enrollment at our Atlantic City and Cape May campuses, and the continued strong participation in the NJ STARS program have supported the college’s overall growth,” Dean of Students Carmen Royal said.
Since 2000, ACCC’s fall enrollment has grown 50 percent to more than 68,200 credits from 45,573, according to Dr. Richard Perniciaro, dean of administration, planning and research.
The number of credits students are taking overall rose to 68,252 from 65,714 in 2006, a 3.86 percent increase. The number of credits taken at the Mays Landing Campus rose to 42,248 from 41,106 for a 2.78 increase. Enrollment at that campus, meanwhile, went to 4,652 from 4,708, a 1.19 percent decrease.
After the main campus, the college’s online virtual “campus” – students taking classes via the Internet – continues to represent a significant portion of the college’s total credit enrollment with a 2.8 percent credit increase to 9,368 from 9,113 in 2006, and an enrollment increase to 1,887 up 2.89 percent. Online credits represent nearly 14 percent of all credits taken by ACCC students.
At the Cape May County Campus, there has been a 5.68 credit increase to 9,285 from 8,786 in 2006, with a 2.15 percent enrollment increase to 1,139 from 1,115. The largest enrollment increase, however, is at the Charles D. Worthington Atlantic City Campus with a 9.23 percent credit increase to 7,351 and enrollment growth of 13.43 percent to 1,098. The increase at WACC is a result of the college’s commitment to providing expanded programs and services at that site.
