Regent University’s enrollment hits 10,000
- March 31, 2017
Regent University announced in February that it has reached an enrollment of 10,000 students, an all-time high.
The university said it has seen a 57 percent jump in total enrollment and a 136 percent increase in new student enrollment during the past two years.
Regent said the gains are the result of a major strategic growth initiative launched two years ago, which involved significant investment in new programs and student services.
Since 2015, Regent has added many degree, concentration and certificate programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. These programs have included cybersecurity, accounting, marketing and health care.
New programs being added this year include a bachelor’s program in human resource management and master’s programs in cybersecurity, instructional design & technology and cosmogony (the study of the origin and development of the universe).
Regent was featured in the magazine’s March issue as part of its continuing series of Virginia college profiles.
