Bossier Parish Community College’s summer 2012 enrollment reached 2,851, an increase of 4.6% over summer 2011, and marks the 4th consecutive “summer” with record enrollment in the school’s history.
Based on the 7th class day credit enrollment figures, BPCC’s enrollment increased 126 students from 2,725 students in summer 2011.
“BPCC's tremendous growth is a result of a total team effort to find innovative ways to expand access to students,” says Chancellor Jim Henderson. “The state's current fiscal challenges require a new business model for delivering solutions to our employers, and we continue to deliver.”
One of the innovative ways BPCC continues to expand access to students is by providing a variety of online courses.
“This summer, we are offering 132 online course sections,” says Kathleen Gay, Dean of Educational Technology. “Because more students want the flexibility to schedule their classes around balancing work, home, and family, the numbers continually are growing. BPCC does a great job meeting students where they are in their lives right now. E-Learning is contributing in a big way to improving the overall quality of education.”
Of the 2,851 students enrolled this summer, 406 students are taking at least one online course and many are taking more than one.
