Spring semester 2007 enrollment is up more than three percent compared to last spring at all three colleges within the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD): City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges.
“As predicted,” SDCCD Chancellor Constance Carroll stated, “the decrease in the student enrollment fee has contributed to the enrollment increases at all three colleges.”
Course fees, also known as tuition, were lowered in January from $26 per unit to $20 per unit for all community colleges within California.
At today’s SDCCD Board of Trustees meeting, administrators reported that enrollment was up this spring by 7.4 percent at City College, 1.5 percent at Miramar College and 0.9 percent at Mesa College, resulting in a districtwide average of 3.1 percent. The spring semester began February 5.
Combined, an estimated 50,000 students attend SDCCD colleges. Mesa College, is located at the west end of Mesa College Drive where the Clairemont, Linda Vista and Kearny Mesa communities come together, while Miramar is located on Black Mountain Road (between Carroll Canyon Road and Mira Mesa Boulevard) and City College is downtown along Park Boulevard and “C” Street.
