KVPR: PPIC data shows college enrollment dipped but CVHEC chief says we ‘are nearing pre-pandemic levels or higher’
The PPIC data showed most high school students in the Valley opt for community colleges. Enrollment at community colleges took a hit in 2020 because of the pandemic, but they have slowly bounced back.
Central Valley Higher Education Consortium executive director Dr. Benjamín Durán, said, “Almost all, if not all community colleges in the Central Valley are back to pre-pandemic levels or higher so they’ve been able to attract and get students back into college. A lot of it has to do with cost, a lot of that has to do with access and familiarity with the area.”
