Belmont College Reports Continued Enrollment Increase
St. Clairsville, OH (January 25, 2017) – With the recent start of the spring semester, Belmont College is pleased to announce that enrollment numbers are continuing to increase.
According to college officials, as of January 24, 2017, the number of students enrolled for the spring term has increased 2.2 percent compared to the same time-period last year. This enrollment growth follows a Fall 2016 headcount enrollment increase of 11.92 percent and establishes an increase for more than two consecutive years.
“We are very pleased with our enrollment numbers for the spring semester,” said Dr. Paul F. Gasparro, President. “This growth signals an awareness in the value and quality of the program offerings at Belmont College.”
Some of Belmont College’s hands-on and technical programs include: Welding, Engineering, Computer and Information Technology, Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning, as well as Health Science programs such as Nursing and Medical Assisting. The college also offers the Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees which allow students the ability to transfer their credits towards a bachelor’s degree at four-year institutions. New programs now offered include Allied Health Administration and Computerized Legal Office Specialist.
The new degree offerings have been added following a recent college-wide initiative titled “Be Connected,” which provides an iPad to every student, faculty member and the majority of staff members. The purpose of Be Connected is to encourage completion and retention, as well as to enhance the way Belmont College teaches and prepares students for the technology-driven careers that await them.
The enrollment growth isn’t limited to just the Belmont’s Main Campus in St. Clairsville. The Harrison County Center in Cadiz, as well as the Monroe County Center in Woodsfield, have also contributed in the college’s enrollment gains.
