SCC Enrollment Increases As New Academic Year Gets Underway

A report released last Tuesday to Southeast Community College’s Board of Governors indicates enrollment for the Summer Quarter is up 2.73 percent over the same period last year.

SCC’s Summer Quarter, the first of four during the 2010-2011 academic year, began July 14 and ends Sept. 23. Final numbers for the Summer Quarter will be available at the end of the term.

Dr. Jack Huck, SCC president, presented the report to the Board during its regular monthly meeting.

“It’s a good start to the year,” Huck said. “We’re in a continued growth pattern, and it is managed growth as well. It’s a wonderful start to the year.”

In other enrollment-related action, the Board approved the 2009-2010 Full-Time Equivalency (FTE) Audit Report, which was completed by Dana F. Cole & Company, LLP, certified public accountants. The College’s FTE for the audit period was 10,335, up 9.4 percent over the previous year.

An FTE student is equivalent to 45 quarter credit hours or 30 semester credit hours of classroom, laboratory, clinical, practicum, independent study course work or cooperative work experience applicable to a degree, diploma, or certificate in a program of study for which credit hours are offered, or 900 contact hours of classroom laboratory course work for which credit hours are not offered or awarded.
