This fall enrollments will reach record levels. More families than ever are looking to save money on their children’s first two years of college. Laid-off workers are entering the community college to boost their employable skills for recession-proof jobs including health care, criminal justice and the emerging clean energy industries. As of July fall enrollment is up nearly 29 percent for the State’s Community College System with Middlesex climbing to 30 percent ahead of this same time last year.
What does this mean? Colleges for the first time may not be “open to all” and could be forced to consider capping enrollment for this fall. Just at a time when students are seeking out the community colleges, a shrinking state budget may mean that a two year education could become harder to get. It is possible that not all students will find seats this fall, especially if they decide to wait until the final days of registration in late August. Capping enrollment may be necessary to make sure that the students who are accepted receive the support and services they need for a strong educational foundation.
