Panama City, FL – Final enrollment for the spring 2011 semester at The Florida State University Panama City was confirmed on January 13, 2011. The total spring 2011 headcount is 1,150 as compared to 1,065 for spring 2010. The total headcount increase is 8.0% when compared to headcount for the spring 2010 semester.
Spring 2011 headcount includes 69 students in Tallahassee who are completing the undergraduate Recreation and Leisure Services Administration program. In 2010 FSU Panama City took over academic administration of the Recreation and Leisure Services Administration undergraduate degree and is currently in the process of moving the program to the Panama City campus beginning fall 2011. Headcount also reflects a 44% enrollment increase in the online Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts Computer Science degrees offered by FSU Panama City when compared to headcount in those programs for spring 2010.
“When students choose FSU Panama City, they find not only nationally ranked degree programs provided at an exceptional value but also an environment where student success is a campus-wide commitment,” said Ken Shaw, dean at FSU Panama City. “We are excited to announce enrollment growth for spring 2011 because it is a reflection of that commitment and the great job our faculty and staff does every day to support and encourage students at FSU Panama City.”
Earlier this month, The Florida State University was ranked 20th in the top 100 “Best Values in Public Colleges 2011” report released by Kiplinger. All of the degree programs at FSU Panama City provide students the same nationally recognized degree offered by the main campus in Tallahassee.
