Northwest State Reports Enrollment Up For Spring

Northwest State Community College said campus enrollment for the 2009 spring semester is up 9.4% over spring 2008.

Amanda Potts, NSCC spokesman, said this year’s student head count, based on 14 days after the semester started, is 3,897. That’s up 330 students over Spring 2008, when the head count stood at 3,567 after 14 days.

Potts said the 3,897 could increase because open enrollment is still underway at the state community college, and a session of eight-week classes won’t start until March.

In October, Northwest State was named Ohio’s fastest-growing two-year college in Ohio by the Ohio Board of Regents. At that time, the fall semester 2008 enrollment, based on the 14-day count, was up 7% over fall 2007.

Tom Stuckey, NSCC president, said future jobs will require specialized skills, skills that can be learned at Northwest State. The college currently offers more than 70 careertrack programs that prepare students for current and new job opportunities.

Northwest State operates its main campus at the intersection of St. Rts. 66 and 34, south of Archbold. There are also satellite campus sites in Bryan, Defiance, Metamora, Paulding, and Van Wert.

Courses are also available over the Internet.
