NEMCC Fall 2010 enrollment total sets school record
Tough economic times such as these often produce a spike in enrollment at institutions of high learning nationwide. At Northeast Mississippi Community College enrollment records have been set and broken in each of the last two years.
While the enrollment total at all of the state’s 15 community/junior colleges is considered unofficial until next month when the State Board for Community and Junior Colleges reports the findings of enrollment audits completed at each school, Northeast currently boasts an unduplicated 2010 fall enrollment of 3,741 students in its academic, career and technical programs combined, according to the college’s Office of Planning and Institutional Research. That number represents the second consecutive increase and includes all full and part-time students.
Northeast maintained the double digit percentage increase it experienced from fall ’08 to fall ’09, a 12.3 percent hike, as well as adding to it in the fall 2010 semester.
Students may enroll in classes at any of Northeast’s three campuses (Booneville, Corinth or New Albany) or a combination of them, but are only counted once.
These 3,741 students enrolled in sufficient courses to also create an increase in credit hour production (CHP) over that of Fall 2009 as well. Currently, the CHP total stands at 52,457. This is the fourth consecutive fall semester that number has risen at Northeast.
Northeast president Johnny L. Allen, Ed.D. is obviously pleased about the new enrollment record, but seems even more proud of the Northeast faculty and administrative staff for its recruiting and retention strategies and commitment to customer service that he says produced that record.
“We talk quite a bit around here about ‘the Northeast family,’” Allen said, “and thanks to the tireless efforts of our entire staff, our family has experienced growth again this year. I truly believe it is the way we treat our students and potential students with a great deal of care and concern that has enabled us to set enrollment records in each of the last three years. As I am in and out of offices on our three campuses, I see excellent customer service in practice despite the demands of a large number of enrollees.
“These are the actions of servant leaders providing support for others.”
