GOCC sees increase in enrollment

Glen Oaks Community College officials said the school is experiencing a 2.7 percent increase in fall semester enrollment, turning the corner on a five-year downward trend.
Glen Oaks president David Devier said the growth compared to fall a year ago is the first since 2009. He said the figure is a welcome change that comes as school officials have been working hard to strategize and implement changes to better meet the needs of our student population.
In the past year, Glen Oaks has added new associate and certificate degree programs, reintroduced programs that had previously been shut down when interest was low, and formed new partnerships with four-year institutions to help create pathways for programs, Devier said.
The college’s overall headcount is 1,134 students. Dual enrollment is up 20 percent from last year and accounts for 332 students.
