Community college enrollment up in Va.

By Mike McPhate

Enrollment at Virginia's community colleges reached record levels during the 2009-2010 academic year.

The Virginia Community College System says enrollment at its 23 colleges increased by 7.2 percent, or 18,799 students, to a record 281,243 over the previous year.

Dabney S. Lancaster in Clifton Forge saw the biggest jump as enrollment rose by 19.1 percent.

Community colleges also saw a 12.8 increase in fulll-time equivalency enrollment, which measures credit hours taken instead of individual students. A single FTE represents 30 hours of academic credit per year.
