Wednesday, August 7, 2022 - In a post-COVID environment, when many organizations are still rebounding and regrouping, Carl Albert State College is proud to celebrate enrollment growth for the fall 2022 semester. The college experienced an increase of over seven percent in student headcount, an eight and a half percent increase in credit hours, and a seven and a half percent increase in concurrent enrollment.

And we’re especially proud to welcome more students to our campus- students we can serve and empower to achieve success.”
