Glen Oaks Community College had a 7.3 percent increase in student headcount and a 10.1 percent increase in credit hours as enrollment numbers are finalized for the winter 2018 semester compared to a year ago.
It represents an upward trend for the sixth straight semester.
Glen Oaks president David Devier said the school’s overall enrollment is 1,232 students this semester. High school students comprise 52 percent of the enrollment.
Program options for high school students include dual enrollment, career and technical education, and early-middle college. The largest increase has been in the early middle college program, Devier said, in which students follow a rigorous plan and attend an additional year at Glen Oaks to complete program requirements for an associate degree or certificate while also earning a high school diploma.
Dual-enrollment courses, meanwhile, allow students to earn college credit through classes held either at their high school or at Glen Oaks.
