CU final enrollment for fall semester reaches over 13,500
By Ariel C. Emberton
Campbellsville, KY - Campbellsville University's fall 2020 enrollment is at 13,683. In the last five years, Campbellsville University has seen an increase in total enrollment across main campus by 202 percent, regional sites and centers by 784 percent and online by 114 percent.
"A modern-day 'miracle' might be the best way to describe the fall 2020 enrollment for Campbellsville University. To enroll 13,683 students in the midst of a global pandemic is far beyond what we anticipated," Dr. Shane Garrison, vice president of enrollment and professor of Theology said.
On main campus, several areas saw an increase from last year's enrollment numbers including returning undergraduate students, degree seeking undergraduate students and new graduate students.
Certificate areas, that saw an increase in enrollment in the last year, include cosmetology and barbering, allied health and welding.
"Academics continue to maintain a standard of excellence even under pandemic conditions," Dr. Donna Hedgepath, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said.
"The flexible hybrid format allows students and staff safe distancing options for staying current in their studies, even if they must quarantine or go home. CU is committed to supportive creative approaches to instruction as we focus on finishing the fall semester strong," she said.
Total graduate enrollment has also increased in the last five years by 642 percent. Students pursuing their Ph.D. are included in this category. In 2019, the university had 18 Ph.D. students, and now there are 23.
Main campus graduate enrollment is up by 29 percent from 2019 to 2020. Online graduate enrollment has increased by 23 percent in the last year and 141 percent in the last five years.
Graduate enrollment at the Louisville Education Center, Conover Education Center in Harrodsburg, Ky., and Phillips Education Center in California all saw an increase within the last five years.
Online enrollment for all programs has increased by 114 percent since fall 2016 with total undergraduate and graduate online student enrollment increasing by 75 and 140 percent, respectively.
Campbellsville University has regional centers in Louisville, Somerset, Harrodsburg, Casey County and Hodgenville and has students enrolled at other sites across the Commonwealth. All Campbellsville University sites and centers saw an increase in enrollment in the last five years, or since their establishment.
Total enrollment for the 2020 fall semester was 13,683 across all degree, undergraduate and graduate, and certificate programs. Campbellsville University has a total of 6,037 traditional students, 24-years-old and younger, and 7,627 non-traditional student, 25-years-old and older.
Of those enrolled at Campbellsville, 43.6 percent are white, 43.1 percent are nonresident alien, 6 percent are Black or African American and 7.3 percent are American Indian or Alaska native, Asian, Hispanic, Native Hawaiian or other pacific islander, race or ethnicity unknown or two or more races.
Garrison said the mission of Campbellsville University has withstood the test of time. "For over 100 years we have been dedicated to equipping students through Christian higher education. Our mission and core values are stronger than ever, even in the midst of a pandemic," he said.
