OC Sets Enrollment Record
Oklahoma Christian’s fall enrollment of 2,271 students is the highest in the school’s 63-year history. The last eight years have featured OC’s eight highest enrollments ever, including the previous record of 2,258 students in 2007.
“This is Oklahoma Christian’s golden age in many ways, including enrollment. We are thrilled with the spirit on campus and the momentum we have because so many students are calling OC home,” President John deSteiguer said. “Our record enrollment and strong retention are a credit to the students seeking a first-rate Christian education, and also to our highquality faculty, dedicated staff and loyal alumni who give students the tools and support to learn, lead and grow.” In addition to the total enrollment record, OC’s graduate enrollment of 361 students also is an all-time high. Oklahoma Christian offers graduate programs in business administration, engineering, ministry and divinity. OC’s MBA program is offered both on-site and online.
The 2012 undergraduate total of 1,910 students is the third highest in OC history and represents a 1.5 percent rise from last year. Graduate enrollment rose 6.2 percent while the overall enrollment total is a 2.2 percent increase over last year’s class. Thirty-seven percent of OC undergraduate students come from Oklahoma, with another 22 percent from Texas.
OC’s international enrollment also is strong, with 344 students (218 undergraduate and 126 graduate) coming from outside the United States. This year, the university opened a Learning Support Center in Kigali, Rwanda, allowing Rwandan students to study in OC’s online MBA program.
