Northwestern College enrollment increases
September 14, 2015
STUDENT ENROLLMENT AT NORTHWESTERN COLLEGE FOR THE FALL SEMESTER IS UP. THE FALL 2015 ENROLLMENT AT NORTHWESTER IS 1,210 STUDENTS, AND INCREASE OF FIVE STUDENTS FROM LAST FALL. A RECORD RATE OF FRESHMAN-TO-SOPHOMORE RETENTION HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE INCREASE, WITH 82 PERCENT RETURNING. MARK BLOEMENDAAL, DEAN OF ENROLLMENT AND MARKETING, SAYS THE UNPRECEDENTED RETENTION RATE TELLS THEM THAT THEY ARE PROVIDING THE HIGH-QUALITY CHRISTIAN EDUCATION STUDENTS EXPECT WHEN THEY ENROLL AT NORTHWESTERN.
NORTHWESTERN HAS ALSO SET A RECORD IN THE NUMBER OF ONLINE STUDENTS. STRONG ENROLLMENT IN THE COLLEGE’S NEW MASTER OF EDUCATION PROGRAMS HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE RECORD, ALONG WITH GOOD NUMBERS IN THE RN-TO-BSN PROGRAM.
THE AVERAGE ACT SCORE OF NORTHWESTERN’S FRESHMAN CLASS ALSO SET A RECORD, WITH A 24.8 COMPOSITE, WELL ABOVE THE IOWA AVERAGE OF 22.0 AND THE NATIONAL AVERAGE OF 21.0.
