Tabor sees increase in on-campus enrollment

Undergraduate enrollment increases by 5 percent

Tabor College is the Mennonite Brethren institution located in Hillsboro, Kansas.

Undergraduate enrollment at Tabor College saw a 5 percent increase in fall-to-fall enrollment. With 531 students on campus, it is a jump of 26 students from fall 2022. With 83 students in graduate and online courses and 50 in dual credit, the college has 664 students enrolled for the first semester of the 2023-24 academic year.

Additionally, the freshman class recorded an average grade point average (GPA) of 3.44 as seniors in high school. It breaks the record set by the previous freshman class (3.43), which toppled a mark that stood for 15 years.

“Enrollment is right on budget, and strong retention is proof of what we have been experiencing on campus, that students are thriving at Tabor College,” President David Janzen says. “We are blown away by how God is working in the lives of these students and the opportunity we have to guide and mentor them as they continue their education.”

The college retained 84 percent of its students from January to September 2023 and 78 percent from the previous fall semester to Sept. 25. The fall-to-fall retention percentage is the best over the last decade.

Tabor’s on-campus and graduate and online students hail from 39 U.S. states and 28 countries.
