FULTON, MO (KMIZ)
Westminster College reports that the school has maintained an increase in enrollment for three consecutive years.
The college welcomes over 200 new students to campus. The number contrasts with enrollment in previous years: At its lowest rate, Westminster enrolled 142 freshmen in 2019.
Paul Orscheln, vice president of enrollment services, marketing and strategic communications, says there may be a correlation between increased enrollment at Westminster and the economic mobility and job placement of its graduates.
“Members of our enrollment services staff work closely with families to help them find suitable financial assistance to receive an education at Westminster, so many families who thought a college education private was out of their price range discovered they could go to Westminster and receive a personalized educational experience that will pay off,” he explains.
At Westminster, the number of transfer students has more than doubled since fall 2021.
