increase in admissions

enrollment increase in VCCS

In addition, focus groups with area high school students were conducted to learn what students consider to be important factors when making decisions about higher education. Using our business intelligence and insights, we created messaging and creative executions that ultimately proved to resonate and influence our student and parent target audiences in ways that got results. College spokesman Josh Meyer described a typical increase in a good year as one or two percent, but in one year the college’s enrollment grew 10.84% — marking the most dramatic enrollment increase in the school’s history, and outperforming the entire Virginia Community College System. Such dramatic growth involved a combination of factors including excellent facilities, strong faculty and leadership — and great teamwork. Since then, Access has continued to be counted as part of the VWCC team through good times and challenges as we navigate the tricky waters of higher education as it evolves.

It [2014] marked our largest [admissions] increase ever, outside the 1960s when our school first started. Double-digit growth is pretty much unheard of.
