UA Projects Increases in Online Enrollment, College Access

By 2024, the University of Arizona is estimated to more than triple its online enrollment, according to projections from UA President, Robert C. Robbins.

Since its debut in the Fall of 2015, UA Online has seen tremendous year-to-year growth. In 2017, more than 3,600 students enrolled in UA Online.

A big part of this success can be attributed to the more flexible education that is provided by UA Online. Through the online platform, students can transfer between the online campus and main campus or a distant site.

As a result, students of all ages and backgrounds enjoy increased access to degree offerings from UA’s world-class education. One population that is thriving in particular are older students who are already in the workforce. Through UA Online’s flexible scheduling and in-house support team, these students have attained degrees that they’ve never had access to before.

UA’s efforts to increase college access also come in the form of corporate partnerships, which helps businesses in Arizona retain their best employees by providing their workforce with opportunities to attain advanced degrees.

The UA has signed 11 cooperate sponsorships so far, that invest in online education for their employees.
