2/16/2011

Dr. Marilyn C. Beck, president of Calhoun Community College, today announced that the college's 2011  spring semester enrollment has reached a new record for any spring semester at the college, with a total of 11,905credit students enrolled to date, an increase of 7.5% over last spring’s numbers.

Of the students taking classes at Calhoun this spring, 5463 are enrolled in day and evening classes at the Decatur campus and 4528 are taking day, evening and weekend classes at the Huntsville/Cummings Research Park campus. The Distance Education program currently has 1145 students taking classes on-line, and enrollment numbers for the Dual Enrollment program currently stand at 450.  The college’s program at Limestone Correctional Facility has an enrollment of 319 students.

Commenting on the college’s continuing enrollment increases  Beck, said, "We are extremely excited about the opportunity to reach an increasing number of students through our academic and technology programs here at Calhoun. We feel that the back-to-back enrollment increases we have experienced over the last three years are clear evidence that Calhoun is meeting the demand for quality, affordable and state-of-the-art  instructional and workforce training opportunities for the communities we serve,” Beck added.

"For those students who may still want to attend college this semester, we have a number of classes that will begin March 9, and there is still time to register for these classes,” said Beck. 

According to Calhoun’s Admissions Office, registration for the college’s second-short term for the spring semester is now underway and will run through March 10.  For more information or a schedule of classes, contact the Calhoun Admissions Office at 256-306-2593 or see the schedule of classes online at Calhoun's website.
