LA CROSSE, Wis.—Viterbo University has closed enrollment for the fall semester effective immediately.

University officials are expecting enrollment figures to be near or at record levels and campus housing facilities are close to capacity. Over 450 new students are expected for fall classes which begin Aug. 26. Transfer students are also affected by the closing, but applications,are still being accepted for the university's non-traditional, adult and off-campus programs.

According to Dr. Roland Nelson, vice president for admission, enrollment was closed for several reasons. "We expected enrollment to be strong and that has indeed occurred. At this point, it's not possible for us to add additional faculty or courses while maintaining the quality that everyone expects."

Nelson attributed the strong fall enrollment, specifically, to a very strong demand in the area of nursing, and, generally, to concerns with the economy and employment which typically prompts individuals to look at further education as an option.
