Fall classes begin with 15,212 students enrolled

With fall classes beginning today, enrollment at Ozarks Technical Community College has increased once again.  A total of 15,212 students are enrolled this semester, 8.8 percent more than the fall of 2010.

“Our student population continues to grow because we continue to offer what the citizens of southwest Missouri need,” explained Dr. Hal Higdon, chancellor of Ozarks Technical Community College.  “With the opening of our new facility in Lebanon and our new classrooms in Springfield, we are working hard to provide the classes and study spaces our students need to succeed.”

The breakout of enrollment among Ozarks Technical Community College’s six locations is as follows:
