Grace College and Seminary’s enrollment this year was up by 83 students. College officials attribute the growth in part to a three-year accelerated degree program that spans all 60 majors, allowing students to graduate sooner, save a year’s tuition and enter the workforce a year earlier, according to a release.
“The increased number of students choosing Grace demonstrates that our aggressive attempts to lower costs and present more efficient educational models are directly benefiting students who seek the best value in educational options,” College President Bill Katip said.
