Enrollment Numbers at CSUMB and Strategies
The community college chancellor’s office last week reported to the Assembly’s Higher Education Committee that the system is facing a nearly 15% enrollment drop due to the pandemic, a loss of 318,800 students from the prior year. That put its student enrollment at 1,833,843, down from 2,152,643 students in 2019-20.
The budget allocated $120 million to the colleges to increase efforts to retain current students and re-engage ones who have dropped out. (Community colleges)
