Final enrollment numbers put Pellissippi State over 10,000 mark

It’s official: Pellissippi State Community College’s enrollment hit another record high this fall.

The college takes a final headcount 14 days after the start of classes, and the number at that point was 10,295 students.

“In tough economic times, Pellissippi State is there, providing accessible, affordable education to new and returning students,” said Allen Edwards, Pellissippi State president.

Across the nation, community colleges have seen a dramatic increase in student enrollment. The rise is attributed to a struggling economy.

Pellissippi State had 8,742 students in fall of 2008.
