Report Projects 10% Increase in California Community College Enrollments

The California Postsecondary Education Commission projects that enrollment in the state's two-year institutions will top 2 million by 2019, an increase of more than 10 percent from the current levels. The report comes at a time, though, when the 110 two-year colleges are facing an 8 percent budget cut in 2009-10 that, if applied to enrollments, would result in 180,000 fewer students.
