FORT WORTH, Texas (Sep. 14, 2012) Tarrant County College once again experienced a fall student headcount of more than 50,000, with an official enrollment of 50,439 students, up .8 percent on five campuses. Total student enrollment for the fall 2011 semester was 50,062.
“Even though our student population has not grown as much in past, we are still pleased that there was an increase this fall. We will continue to be deliberate about trying to reach everyone who needs our services,” said TCC Chancellor Erma Johnson Hadley. “This includes opening a campus center in a space owned by the Crowley ISD. Last year we opened a campus center in a vacant library building owned by Haltom City – all in an effort to reach people at the closest points possible.”
Trinity River Campus, with an enrollment of 8,407, experienced the greatest campus percentage increase in growth, up 16.3 percent over fall 2011. Enrollment was also up 3.7 percent on South Campus, where 12,574 students are enrolled.
Other campus enrollment figures are 16,956 at Northeast, a .4 percent decrease; 13,609 at Northwest, a .4 percent decrease; and 14,390 at Southeast, down 3.7 percent.
“We shall continue to examine our systems and processes so we can address those matters affecting enrollment that are in our control. At the end of the day, Tarrant County College continues to make dreams come true by providing affordable and open access to quality teaching and learning,” Hadley said.
Registration for the second eight-week term is under way through Oct. 8 for first- time-in-college students and Oct. 15 for current students. For class schedule information, visit www.tccd.edu.
These figures do not represent enrollment of all fall semester offerings, which include two eight-week terms and other terms of varying length that allow today’s students maximum scheduling flexibility.
Also, campus totals added together equal more than the district figure because many students enroll on more than one campus.
