HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Central Community College reported an increase in its total college-wide enrollment for the fall 2023 semester, with a total of 6,636 students. This is up from the 6,209 students enrolled at the start of the fall 2022 semester.

The total is comprised of 2,186 on-campus students and 4,450 distance learning students enrolled at CCC’s campuses in Columbus, Grand Island and Hastings and centers in Holdrege, Kearney and Lexington.

“It is encouraging to see our overall enrollment numbers exceeding 2019, prior to the pandemic, as we continue to see extremely strong job placement of graduates with technical degrees and students seeking economical transfer courses for advanced degrees,” said CCC President Dr. Matt Gotschall.

Enrollment in health, skilled and technical sciences, business, and academic transfer programs is rising due to high demand from the workforce and students.
