Freed-Hardeman University has cause to celebrate its Spring 2018 enrollment, according to FHU President David Shannon.
Undergraduate headcount for the semester is up 119 students, an increase of 9.2 percent over Spring 2017. Shannon cites growth in transfer and dual enrollment students and an exceptional retention rate as primary factors in the increase. Growth was apparent in the undergraduate population at both the Henderson and Dickson locations.
The fall-to-spring retention rate set an all-time institutional record for first-time, full-time freshmen. Their 96 percent retention rate was an increase of three percentage points over the Fall 2016 cohort. The fall-to-spring retention rate for all students increased to 94 percent, an improvement of two percentage points over last year.
In addition, graduate credit hour production increased 146 hours or 4.6 percent. The graduate business program continued to achieve substantial gains with an increase of 257 hours or 66.2 percent. Growth in graduate credit hour production at Dickson outpaced the growth in headcount with an increase of 851 credit hours for a 92 percent increase.
“These gains are very encouraging,” Shannon said. “They are the result of a great deal of hard work on the part of many individuals. I am grateful for all they do to recruit and train students to use their gifts for His glory.”
