Will More Students Finally Find Community Colleges This Fall?

Will more students finally find community colleges this fall?

Reported by EdSurge, community college has long felt like the hyper-rational economic choice. And yet, despite their affordability, year after year, millions of students would go on to choose a private college counterpart instead. But this fall, many of the reasons for choosing the private experience are less glaringly obvious. And in comparing one remote online classroom to another, you might think community colleges would have an even greater proposition this year than in the past.

The takeaway? Will community colleges finally seize the moment and become a primary choice for middle- and high-income families as well, beginning this fall? We’ll be watching to see.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
