Fall 2013 Enrollment Is New PCC Record
WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College administrators announced this month that the college is once again serving a record curriculum enrollment this fall.
According to PCC President G. Dennis Massey, 9,117 students are taking credit classes at Pitt this semester, an increase of more than one percent from a year ago, when 9,023 students enrolled. And, depending upon the number of students that sign up for late-start classes this fall, PCC’s record enrollment could climb further.
“There are still some openings in our late-start classes,” said Joanne Ceres, PCC Director of Enrollment Management/Registrar. “Students can continue to register for these classes up until the day before they begin, so the total number of students can still rise.”
Last year, PCC was one of only six North Carolina community colleges to witness a curriculum enrollment increase. In fact, the six percent-growth Pitt experienced was the most of any community college in the state.
“We know that there is considerable demand for the services we offer,” Massey said. “Our credit enrollment this fall is at an all-time high, and the number continues to rise.
“These students have choices in pursuing higher education and their future. We know that the quality of our programs, our support of their pursuit of their goals, and our responsiveness to their challenges are vital concerns for us all.”
Massey said PCC has also witnessed “significant expansion” with regard to its noncredit programming as it continually strives to meet the needs of industry, small business, public safety and professional training, and to individuals seeking self-enhancement.
