Calhoun Community College numbers are record setting for the spring

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) - Calhoun Community College announces that the 2010 spring semester enrollment hit a record high.

Dr. Marilyn C. Beck, president of Calhoun Community College, announced that the school is seeing 10,896 students enrolled to date. That's an increase of 17.74% over last spring's numbers.

Out of those numbers, there are 5,135 students enrolled for day and evening classes at the Decatur campus. The Huntsville/Cummings Research Park campus is seeing 4,356 students taking day, evening, and weekend classes.

The Dual enrollment and on-line courses have a little more than 1,000 students this semester, however the College's Admissions office is not yet finished processing applications. The Limestone County Correctional Facility has 325 students enrolled.

"We are extremely excited about reaching a new spring semester enrollment record for Calhoun. As the largest of Alabama's two-year colleges, Calhoun continues to offer quality instruction and training opportunities at an affordable cost and in various schedules and formats, which is indicated through our continued enrollment increases," said Dr. Beck.

"We are wrapping up final enrollment for our Dual Enrollment students and anticipate at least 220 students to be added, so we will definitely surpass the 11,000 mark for our spring semester," added Beck.

"We have a number of classes that begin the first of March, so we will see our final enrollment number for spring semester increase again once these students are added," said Dr. Rob Steinmetz, associate dean for enrollment management.

 Registration for the second-short term of spring semester runs February 10 through March 8. Classes begin March 8.
