Amarillo College Spring Enrollments Flatlining

Normally as the economy trends downward, enrollment in community and junior colleges tends to rise, but Panhandle schools are seeing the number of enrollments trending down also.

Amarillo College officials say they are not seeing an increase in enrollments and it may stem from new jobs being available allowing more flexibility for those needing more money.

A.C. has seen a small drop in students in the spring, but an increase in the number of full-time students accrediting this to how college advisors advise students.

The college says when they put students on a full-time enrollment path, they find that the success of the students is dramatically higher than students who are enrolled part time
