More UCCS students enrolled for the summer semester and in more classes, according to official census reports released Thursday by the Office of Admissions and Records.
A total of 3,024 students enrolled for summer courses, a 94 student or 3.2 percent headcount increase from last year totals, according to Steve Ellis, interim associate vice chancellor, Student Success. Those students enrolled in an average of six credit hours, bringing the total credit hours for the summer semester to 18,280, an increase of 715 or 4.1 percent from last year. The numbers were compiled after the second day of classes on June 15.
“This is an important, and positive, start for the new academic year,” Ellis said. “I greatly appreciate the effort of many faculty and staff members who made it possible for these students to enroll and to continue progress toward their personal and academic goals.”
