Alcorn State University sees rise in fall enrollment, ACT scores among freshman class (53 hits)

Alcorn State University continues to garner a number of scholar students in record numbers.

For the third consecutive year, enrollment is up at the University with a total of 3,753 students, which is a 5 percent increase from last year’s total (3,592). The increase is due in part to the large class of 2022, which is represented by 711 students.

Interim President, Dr. Donzell Lee attributes the rise in enrollment to Alcorn’s stellar reputation and the accolades the university earns throughout the year.

"Alcorn has proven to be an outstanding institution that shapes students into successful professionals," said Lee. "The university's reputation has attracted an abundance of students from across the state of Mississippi, the nation, and the world. We are proud of our growth progression."

The academic performance of Alcorn's first-time students has also shown an increase, as this year's average composite ACT score is a 20.53, the highest in school history. There was a 24 percent increase in the number of students with an ACT score between 24 and 27, and a 36 percent increase in students with an ACT of 28 or above.

Dr. Lee is proud to see so many gifted students choose Alcorn as their place of study for the next four years.

"It is an honor to have some of the nation's best scholars here at Alcorn. They are the key to our future, and we are proud of their efforts to help raise the academic profile of our campus."
