The number of students seeking 4 year degrees at ABAC is growing rapidly.

Enrollment in the college's bachelor programs is up 23% over last year. More than 1100 students are enrolled in 4 year programs this semester. That's more than a third of the total enrollment. ABAC's president believes the numbers will continue to grow.

"We just launched a new bachelor's degree in business this past year and we have good enrollment response in it and we anticipate it growing,” said Dr. David Bridges, ABAC ‘s President. “Agriculture and natural resources that program continues to grow every year.”

The first bachelor's degree program started in 2008 with just 41 students. Enrollment has increased at least 20% each year since then.
