Spring Credit Hours See First Increase Since 2011

Goodwell, Okla. — Preliminary enrollment reports for the 2018 Spring semester at Oklahoma Panhandle
State University show the first Spring credit hour enrollment increase since 2011.

Reports show 13,205 total credit hours which is a 3% increase from Spring of 2017. The last Spring
increase in credit hours in 2011 was 0.2%.

University President Dr. Tim Faltyn commented, “I am so proud. Our faculty, staff, coaches, and High
School and Community Relations team have worked so hard to make this happen. Credit hour
production is the generator of revenue for the University, so it is key to be up in this area. Panhandle
State has an important role in the continual change of lives.”

Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Julie Dinger added, “Student retention is critical to our
sustainability and helping students graduate. I’m happy to see so many students returning.”

Sophomore Erika Chartrand is from Quebec, Canada and came to Panhandle State to study Elementary
Education. “The Elementary Education program at PSU has been a blessing to me. The small campus
gives me the opportunity to get to know my teachers. They are always willing to help and want to see
you succeed. We are all like a big family!”

Sequoia Smith is a junior from Boyd, Texas and he is majoring in both Agribusiness and Animal Science.
“Things are changing here, and for the better! It shows here on campus and I am proud to be an Aggie.”
