Official fall enrollment figures show Tarrant County College is continuing its tradition of steady growth with a fall student headcount for its five campuses at 50,765 students, up .6 percent from the same period one year ago. Total student enrollment for the fall 2012 semester was 50,439.
Southeast Campus experienced the greatest campus increase in growth, up 5.7 percent to an enrollment of 15,217. Trinity River Campus reported a 5.3 increase with 8,849 students. South Campus enrolled 12,807 students, representing a 1.9 increase, and Northwest Campus enrolled 13,755 students, representing a 1.1 increase. Northeast Campus was the only campus to report a decrease compared to last year with 2.3 percent fewer students at 16,572, largely related to the reconstruction of State Highway 183.
Registration for the second eight-week term is under way through Oct. 7 for first- time-in-college students and Oct. 14 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.
