Lubbock Christian University announced today that the school has achieved an enrollment of more than 2,000 for the fall 2013 semester.

According to the office of the registrar, LCU has a fall enrollment of 2,002 students. The university surpassed the 2,000 student mark for the fourth consecutive year and for the sixth time in the last nine years, leaving university officials optimistic despite the slight decrease from the enrollment for the fall 2012 semester.

Among the contributing factors for enrollment figures attained by LCU is the elimination of remaining junior varsity sports teams. The university's move to NCAA Division II necessitated this move sooner or later.

"We believe that the NCAA transition fits very well with our long term academic goals," said Dr. Brian Starr, Executive Vice President. "The elimination of JV sports will be positive for the university in the long term, but we are undoubtedly experiencing some short term challenges during the transition." 

In addition to once again achieving the 2,000 student threshold, there are other areas of note in LCU's enrollment picture. The Honors Program enrolled a record number of students and the university recorded stronger retention results across the university for the second consecutive year.

"We give thanks for another outstanding group of talented students who have become part of the LCU family this fall," said LCU President Tim Perrin. "We are blessed with a rich diversity in the student body as our students come from across the region, the nation, and the world. Each student is a precious gift and our commitment is to passionately pursue the success of every one."

Lubbock Christian University has over 2000 students and is a four-year private, master's level institution that promotes unique educational opportunities with a strategic focus on student success in four key areas: spiritual formation, intellectual growth, personal stewardship and leadership development. Degree programs are offered for both bachelor's degrees and master's degrees. For over 55 years, the school has offered academic excellence in a Christian environment.
