Enrollment hits new high as Sac State promotes ‘Finish in Four’
Sacramento State has set another enrollment record for the fall semester at 30,531, including 3,700 first-year students, 4,000 undergraduate transfers and more than 700 new first-time graduate students.
Sac State has responded with a significant increase in the number of classes students are able to take this fall. “We are all working together to help more students get the courses they need to give them the opportunity to graduate on time,” says Student Affairs Vice President Ed Mills.
The University this year launched the “Finish in Four” campaign, which encourages students to graduate within four years by taking 15 units per semester. Students have embraced the challenge, with 62 percent of them signing on to the pledge. The average unit load for new freshmen stands at 14.56 units this fall. Sac State also has created a KEYS to Degree online toolbox with resources to help students track and achieve their degrees.
“We are all-in to help our students be successful,” says Interim Provost Ming-Tung “Mike” Lee.
