WAC Update 32

“So how is the student enrollment going?”

This is a common question that I get asked in one form or another, and I have to be honest with you, it is not going well.  Due to the low response to the advertising, I have decided to reduce our Fall offerings down to just one course:  New Testament Survey.  But to offer even this one course we really should have a couple more students.

I know that transparency is often not encouraged when it comes to bad news – especially in a business.  Positive news is better for sales, so find a way to give the news a positive spin.  But I have always been a big believer in being as transparent as possible.

The low enrollment was expected because of our late start and limited (almost zero) advertising budget.  But it is even lower than I had expected.  So what next?

  • We are offering the New Testament Survey course for only $400, which is a $200 discount.  So, if you are considering taking a course, please apply soon!
  • We are still planning on offering courses in January and many of the courses will be the same ones that we offered this term.
  • We need to come up with an effective advertising campaign.  Please pray that God guides us to the best method.
  • We need some seed money to fund this advertising.  Please pray that God helps us find a source for these funds.
  • And please pray some more… We need God’s clear direction as we move forward.
