After enjoying some well-deserved time off, thousands of students returned to Washtenaw Community College’s campus, flooding the hallways and classrooms once again.

While most Michigan community colleges are down an average of three percent in credit hours and 2.3 percent in headcount, WCC continues to hold its own on enrollment.

Due to late enrollment, final figures are not yet available.

“We are very pleased to maintain our enrollment and position as a leader in the state,” said Evan Montague, associate vice president for WCC’s Recruitment & Student Enrollment. “This is based on the hard work of all faculty and staff across the college.”

Classes got underway on August 29 and were held during part of the Labor Day weekend. No classes were held on the holiday.

Other flexible classes start in September and October. The most up-to-date options can be viewed at wccnet.edu.
