Online enrollment up: Administrators cite high gas prices - Charlie Angelo, Longmont Times-Call

More Front Range Community College students are taking online classes this summer than are attending traditional classes at any one of its on-site campuses. That’s a first for the community college system, said FRCC chief administrative officer Mike Kupcho. Some 320 students are taking online classes, compared with 285 students signed up at FRCC’s Larimer campus in Fort Collins, which traditionally has had the highest enrollment, and 276 students at the Westminster campus. “It’s unusual for online to be higher than the two major campuses,” Kupcho said. “I would guess that people are trying to cut back on driving wherever possible.”
