“We’re very student-centric at AIC and believe that a college education is more than academic and intellectual growth. It includes personal, spiritual, and professional development; building a sense of community and trust between staff and students."

The Chronicle of Higher Education recently named American International College (AIC) one of the fastest growing colleges in the United States for the fourth time. Among private, non-profit master’s institutions, AIC placed among the top 20 colleges and universities in the country with a 131.5% growth rate, more than doubling its enrollment over a ten year span, 2003-2013.

In categorical comparison to other colleges and universities in the Commonwealth, Worcester Polytechnic Institute ranked sixth in private non-profit doctoral degree institutions with a 69% growth, Bay Path University ranked seventeenth in private baccalaureate institutions with 79.4% growth and AIC ranked eighteenth in private master’s institutions with 131.5% growth.

“We are extremely proud to have been recognized for our efforts," says President Vincent Maniaci. “We’re very student-centric at AIC and believe that a college education is more than academic and intellectual growth. It includes personal, spiritual, and professional development; building a sense of community and trust between staff and students. These ideals coupled with the College’s commitment to identify future trends as we develop programs, give our students a solid foundation on which they can build to reach their full potential, paving the way for them to compete successfully in a rapidly changing world.”

Data collected for the Chronicle of Higher Education was based on fall enrollments of full-time and part-time students and included all U.S. degree granting programs with a minimum of a 500 student enrollment in 2003.
