Enrollment Numbers Are Up!

Whether its the economy, new academic programs or better recruitment, enrollment numbers are up at West Kentucky Community and Technical College. We expect our credential-seeking enrollment to be up by about 10% over last year, said Dr. Karen Boyd, WKCTCs coordinator of institutional research. Last fall, WKCTC saw a 14% increase in enrollment and had a record high of 7,529 students. Dr. Boyd said enrollment of minority students seeking a degree at WKCTC has increased 21% from this time last year. We hope those numbers continue to grow, said Dr. Tena Payne, dean of academic affairs at the college.

Students still have time to register for the fall semester. Classes begin August 16. Students can register in the WKCTC advising center located in the Anderson Building, room 106. Advisors are available to help with the registration process and offer assistance in creating an academic plan that can help students reach their academic goals. The center is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Friday, 8:00 am 4:30 pm. Dr. Payne said students are encouraged to make an appointment to avoid waiting during registration. Appointments are available by calling the advising center at (270) 534-3408.

Students can also submit an online application at //admissions/forms.aspx
No fee is required. Students submitting an online application must still register for classes.

Student identification cards can be obtained in the Anderson Technical Building after students have registered for classes. Students must have a picture ID and their fall schedule to get a WKCTC student ID.
