Following numerous section cuts and hundreds of students being unable to get their classes, a major decrease in student enrollment has occurred this semester.
Although enrollment has been decreasing since 2009, this spring enrollment has decreased by 8.72% compared to last year.
As of Feb. 29 there were 23,084 students enrolled at PCC, according to Crystal Kollross, interim director of institutional effectiveness and enrollment management. That is 2,204 students fewer than last year’s Feb. 28 number of 25,288. “The head count has gone down,” Kollross said, “but that’s a trend.”
