Curriculum Headcount Is Up Once Again

WINTERVILLE—A final look at Pitt Community College’s enrollment data this spring shows the college’s curriculum headcount is up 67 students compared to the same point a year ago.
Joanne Ceres, PCC director of enrollment management/registrar, said last week that 8,686 students signed up for credit courses this semester. That’s about one percent more than the 8,619 students who enrolled at Pitt for the 2013 Spring Semester.
Enrollment growth has been the trend for many years at PCC. In fact, in the Feb. 17 edition of Community College Week (CCW), Pitt ranked 17th nationally in terms of enrollment growth for schools with enrollments between 5,000-9,999 students. No other North Carolina community college ranked within the top 50 in that category.
The CCW report compared enrollment data from Fall 2011 with Fall 2012. The report stated that PCC gained 399 students during that time frame, which represented a five percent enrollment increase.
Between Fall 2006, when 6,254 students signed up for classes, and Fall 2013, when 9,057 registered, PCC’s curriculum enrollment grew 44.8 percent.
