Manhattan Christian College continues to set enrollment records with the twentieth day counts released this week. A head count of 412 for the current fall semester represents a 1.2% increase over fall 2000 and a cumulative 44% enrollment increase over the last ten years.
The total number of full-time students dropped a little over 3%, but the number of part-time students increased 13% bringing the number of part-time students to 122. This growing number of part-time non-degree seeking students reflects a greater interest from KSU students as well as other adults in the community who want to take a few MCC classes for special interest.
Seventy-two percent of the 142 new students on campus are from Kansas. But, only 53% of the new students are coming straight from high school as traditional college students. The resulting increased number of older students coming back to college is comparable to the national trend.
MCC offers distinctive training in church ministry, many dual-degree
opportunities with Kansas State University across the street, and a degree
completion program in management and ethics. Dually accredited by The Higher
Learning Commission, a member of the North Central Association, and the
Association of Bible Colleges, MCC has been educating, equipping, and enriching
Christian leaders since 1927.
