Central State University Shows a Large Increase in First-Time Enrollments

central-stateOver the past several weeks JBHE has reported on significant enrollment increases at several public and private historically Black colleges and universities. Now we have more good news to report.

Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio, reports that when final enrollment numbers are made official, it expects to have a record number of students in its entering class. Enrollments of new students are expected to be up by 22 percent this fall.

One of the main reasons for the first-time student enrollment increase was a 76 percent reduction in the out-of-state tuition surcharge for students who are not Ohio residents. (See earlier JBHE post here.) The largest contingent of new out-of-state students is from Michigan, followed by Illinois and Indiana.

KrahStephanie L. Krah, vice president for student affairs and enrollment management at Central State University, stated that “students are coming from 21 states and international countries. Central State University is the perfect choice for any student, in-state, out-of-state, and international.”

Dr. Krah is a graduate of the University of Toledo in Ohio, where she majored in exercise science. She holds a master of public health degree from a combined program at the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University and a Ph.D. in higher education administration from Ohio University.
