For the first time since 2004, MCCC has seen a decrease in student enrollment.
Numbers, which were final after the January 14 add/drop deadline, indicate that student enrollment for the Winter 2011 semester is at 4,460, a two-percent decrease (102 students) from last year’s 4,562.
Billable contact hours are also down. Students enrolled in 43,298 contacts hours this semester, a six-percent decrease from last winter semester’s count of 46, 003.
The decrease in students and contact hours breaks the six-year streak of record growth.
