Glen Oaks sees increase in enrollment

Officials from Glen Oaks Community College said the school experienced an enrollment increase for the second straight semester, representing a 16.8 percent jump over the 2015 winter semester, and an actual increase over the 2015 fall semester.
President David Devier said the student increase is a testament to the hard work faculty and staff have put into the college’s marketing efforts, additional programming, and expanded high school offerings in dual-enrollment and career-and-technical education.
The college experienced a 2.7 percent increase in the 2015 fall semester enrollment, turning the corner on a five-year downward trend.
Over 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 noted.
Headcount for the current semester is 1,136 students. Dual enrollment accounts for more than 40 percent of the total student population, Devier noted.
