Weatherford College announced Wednesday that enrollment for the Summer II semester is the highest it’s been in seven years.
A total of 994 students enrolled in the second online summer semester, a 5 percent increase over the 2019 Summer II semester.
“Weatherford College offers a high-quality education at an affordable price,” said Dr. Tod Allen Farmer, WC president. “Our strong enrollment growth is a direct result of this exceptional value.”
Summer II students enrolled in 39,287 semester credit hours, up 7 percent from 2019, and 80,944 contact hours, up 18 percent from 2019. The state uses contact hour numbers when determining funding for community colleges.
Fall registration is currently underway with classes being offered in online, face-to-face, and hybrid formats.
“The uncertainties associated with COVID-19 are causing many university-bound students to give Weatherford College a second look,” said Dr. Tod Allen Farmer, WC president. “Students appreciate the expansive choice of face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses.”
