Cox College sees record Spring enrollment for 2016

Cox College’s steady growth is proven by the numbers: 877 students are currently enrolled, making this semester the largest Spring semester in the college’s history.   

“We are thrilled that more and more students are choosing Cox College to advance their careers,” says Dr. Jim Moore, vice president of College Services Institutional Research for Cox College. “Students know that when they come to Cox College, they are supported by a faculty and staff focused on their success, and that they’ll graduate with a quality education.” 

Cox College expects to see continued, sustained growth in the upcoming years, especially in light of the current shortage of healthcare professionals. It’s growth that benefits the local community: Most of the college’s graduates stay within southwest Missouri after completing their studies.

Cox College was established in 1907 as Burge School of Nursing. Today, the private college offers a variety of associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Nursing, Nutrition Diagnostics, Occupational Therapy, Diagnostic Imaging, Radiography and Medical Assisting, as well as certificates in Medical Billing and Coding.
