TABOR: Tabor announces record enrollment
Tabor College celebrated its Centennial last fall with an enrollment of 612 students, the largest in its 100-year history. Now the college has set a new record with 640 students, a 4.5 percent increase.
The official registrar’s tally Sept. 21 shows enrollment records set by the college in five areas: overall enrollment, 640; full-time equivalency enrollment, 596; full-time students on campus, 504; full-time students in all programs, 521; and graduate students, 22.
Of the 184 new students enrolled on the Hillsboro campus this fall, 140 of them are freshmen. Seventy-five members of the freshman class are Kansas residents and 65 are from out-of-state, including four international students. New transfer student enrollment is 44, equaling last year’s number.
The record-setting enrollment was bolstered by a concurrent rise in student retention at Tabor College, which, from last spring to this fall, was 86 percent.
