More Tennessee adults in school
The Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) released college enrollment data for the fall 2018 semester, indicating that 221,775 students across the state enrolled in community colleges and public universities for the 2018-2019 academic year. This marks the third consecutive year that postsecondary enrollment has grown across the state, and an increase of 1,656 additional students compared to fall 2017. “Tennessee’s overall public college enrollment growth defies the national trend of declining enrollment,” said THEC Executive Director Mike Krause. “Innovative state policy, including the Tennessee Reconnect grant and Tennessee Promise, has continued to expand opportunity for Tennesseans to enroll in higher education.” The largest gains in enrollment occurred at Tennessee’s thirteen community colleges, with 88,352 students enrolled for the fall semester; a 2.1 percent increase over fall 2017. Cleveland State Community College and Columbia State Community College saw the largest enrollment increases of 8.9 and 5 percent, respectively, over fall 2017. This increase includes the first cohort of adult learners using the Tennessee Reconnect scholarship at community and technical colleges. As reported by the Tennessee Board of Regents, adult student enrollment increased by 17.4 percent this fall.
