Walters State enrollment is up
Spring enrollment at Walters State Community College is up 3 percent over last spring. A total of 5,106 students are enrolled this spring. Full-time equivalency (FTE), which represents the number of students attending full-time, is up by 126 students, or 3.8 percent. The college is one of only four community colleges in Tennessee showing higher numbers in both categories. Dr. Tony Miksa, president of Walters State, credits part of the increase to the college’s push to make adult learners aware of the opportunities available through Tennessee Reconnect. Starting in the fall of thisyear, the Tennessee Reconnect scholarship initiative will pay tuition for adult students attending a community college or tech school. Full-time spring enrollment is up on all four Walters State campuses. Walters State Community College offers more than 150 programs of study, including technical certificates, associate of science, associate of arts, associate of fine arts, associate of applied science and associate of science in teaching degrees.
