Enrollment growth continues at Cameron University

Enrollment at Cameron University continues its unprecedented growth with an increase of 12 percent in full-time equivalent (FTE) hours for the Summer 2010 semester. This follows the trend set in Fall 2009 when Cameron enjoyed the greatest enrollment increase of any public university in the state and in Spring 2010 when enrollment once again reached historic numbers.

According to Jamie Glover, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management, the continuing increase in enrollment can be attributed to several factors. "The top-quality education offered at Cameron, combined with the university's commitment to providing an affordable education, are key factors as more and more students from across the region select Cameron as their University of Choice," Glover says. "Increased financial assistance initiatives, our focus to provide a complete collegiate experience, and the increase in scheduling options and online courses also play crucial roles in Cameron's enrollment growth."

Although enrollment for eight-week Summer 2010 has ended, limited enrollment is still available in several workshops and four-week courses at Cameron this summer. The second set of four-week classes begins on June 29. Enrollment for the Fall 2010 semester is also open, and fall classes begin August 18.

FTE is a standard used by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education to accurately compare enrollment at state universities. The semester full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment is based on the definition of a full-time student.
