Tulsa Community College said it’s seeing a big increase in students for its summer classes, and COVID-19 might be a factor in that spike.
The college said enrollment is up by double digits for its summer courses.
Classes are now online because of the pandemic, and the school’s enrollment department said community colleges historically see increases in time of high unemployment and economic uncertainty.
TCC said it’s too early to know what fall is going to look like, but they’re preparing for another enrollment spike.
The college said it’s focused right now on virtual recruitment efforts because COVID-19 canceled many recruiting events in the spring.
Rachael Achivare Hill with TCC said "every week on Wednesdays on Instagram and Facebook, we’re offering live Q&A sessions; we have virtual events for our perspective students where we can help you through your application, your Tulsa achieves application, and the FAFSA.”
