Following a name change, the Round Rock Higher Education Center’s enrollment has climbed.
Enrollment in upper-level and graduate courses in the fall of 1998 was 550. This fall, preliminary enrollment stands at 1,496 students, according to a news release from the center. Hundreds of additional students are enrolled through the center’s lower division programs.
Established in 1998 as the North Austin/Williamson County Multi-Institution Teaching Center, the center recently changed its name.
“The name we were using for marketing purposes, ‘The MITC,’ was unclear. We found it created problems with name recognition and public awareness. People just didn’t know what an MITC was,” says Edna Rehbein, director of the center.
Through the center, Southwest Texas State University offers five undergraduate degree programs, 15 master’s programs and several advanced certificates. Austin Community College and Temple College at Taylor offer a variety of associate’s degree programs, workforce training programs and other work that applies to SWT’s undergraduate offerings.
