APSU eyes enrollment boom with record numbers in summer school

Just like last fall when enrollment topped record numbers, Austin Peay State University again has reason to celebrate – this time, for the summer session.

Summer I enrollment opened June 7 with 2,746 students, an increase of 15.6 percent from the start of Summer I in 2009 when 2,375 started the summer term.

This is the Universitys largest summer enrollment ever. The increase is the direct result of efforts to increase summer enrollment.

“We have intentionally worked to increase summer school offerings and help students achieve their degrees faster,” said Dr. Tristan Denley, provost and vice president of academic affairs. “The beauty of summer school is that you can complete a semester's worth of work in five weeks during Summer I or Summer II terms, or if you attend Austin Peay @ Fort Campbell, you can complete a semester in eight weeks.

“That is incredibly beneficial to the population we serve, especially those who are military, working adults or parents trying to complete a degree.”

Students interested in attending summer school may enroll for the Summer II term through July 12, when classes begin for this term.
