A fee grant will also be applied to Technology, Student Activity, and Admission Application fees for students who enroll for the Spring 2022 Semester.
The “Fall 2021 Challenge” was offered to all students who enrolled full-time during the Fall 2021 semester and receive a 2.0 GPA or better would be eligible to receive a full tuition grant for the Spring 2022 semester. 627 students are currently enrolled full-time and will be considered for the “Fall 2021 Challenge” and eligible to have their Spring 2022 tuition covered as long as they are enrolled in a degree program.
Currently, the College is seeing about a 22 percent increase in Spring enrollment from the previous year. The College aims to exceed pre-COVID-19 enrollment numbers.
