From Fall 2007 to Fall 2008, online enrollments at Centralia College increased a whopping 48.4%. This far outpaces online enrollment growth in the state’s community and technical colleges which, for the same time period, grew 24%. In the five year period prior to Fall 2007 Centralia College maintained steady enrollment numbers in online classes. You may be be able to say that we’ve “caught up” to the state enrollment trends. I suspect that we will see less dramatic increases in the next couple of years. However, the trend in our state and nationally is for online enrollment to continue to grow at a faster pace than overall enrollment.
