Criswell College Announces Five-Year High in Enrollment
DALLAS - Criswell College is pleased to announce a five-year high in enrollment for the Fall 2014 semester.
Total enrollment for undergraduate and graduate students stands at 350, an 8% increase from 2013. These 350 students are comprised of 104 new students, a 21% increase from 2013. Encouraging news also came from the offices of Student Services and Institutional Effectiveness & Research. Retention rates, hovering around 50% in 2012, stayed at a steady near-80% for a second consecutive year.
Vice President of Enrollment Services, Russell Marriott, notes that "this is especially encouraging considering that recruiting season and the 2013-2014 school year largely occurred during the transition between presidents." Dr. Jerry Johnson became President of the National Religious Broadcasters on November 1, 2013, and Dr. Barry Creamer was elected as Criswell's seventh president on July 7, 2014.
