PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) – Pueblo Community College (PCC) President Dr. Patty Erjavec said that before the pandemic, the college was on a great trajectory for increased enrollment. But when covid hit she said everything fell apart. Despite the challenges the college has faced since the pandemic, Erjavec said his team has really stepped up to engage students, especially from high schools in the community.

Erjavec said the real increase in enrollment this fall term came from partnerships with the various school districts in the area. She said CCP has been able to take advantage of the opportunities that concurrent enrollment provides for Pueblo students. Erjavec said tuition is paid for by school districts. She said books, fees and transportation are made available to students through grants.

“The real boost was that we removed all barriers for high school students,” Erjavec said.

Erjavec said the number of degree-seeking students remained normal.

“A lot of colleges and universities are seeing declining enrollment of adult learners and traditional students. So to be able to re-engage students and keep them in the pipeline, we’re very positive about that as well,” Erjavec said.

The CCP said registration for the Spring 2023 term begins Nov. 2.
