Our students, our campus (FY 2012)
- 9,850 credit students were enrolled in fiscal year 2012.
- 60% of our students are traditional college age and 39% are adult learners.
- 62% of credit students are enrolled part-time. A majority of community college students nationwide attend college part time, and an even larger number work more than 20 hours a week.
- Students of color represented 28% of our student population. The percentage of students of color has been steadily increasing over the last several years.
- 60% of our students came from a home where neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree; 21% of our students came from a home where neither parent has any postsecondary education. One of the biggest challenges first-generation students face is a lack of understanding how to pay for college and obtain financial aid.
- 57% of our students are classified as “low-income” students. On a national level, most community college students receive state and federal aid to attend school.
- 4,954 individuals received continuing education and customized training through our Center for Professional and Workforce Development. We train employees working for 3M, the St. Paul Fire Department, Prairie Island Nuclear Plant and General Dynamics, to name a few.
