Board of Regents Announces 2019 Fall Semester Enrollment

02 October 2019

Preliminary figures released Wednesday by the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) show a slight decrease at state universities and systemwide in full-time equivalency (FTE) enrollment of students at public higher education institutions in Kansas.

Enrollment for Pratt Community College is also down 1.58 percent compared to Fall 2018. However, with the enrollment increase this past summer, our current academic year enrollment is up 0.3 percent.

PCC FTE is at 861 students compared to 875 this time last year. FTE is calculated by dividing the total number of undergraduate credit hours taken in a semester by 15.

In the two-year sector, enrollment was down across the state’s 19 community colleges with a reported decrease of 1,164 FTE students (-2.79 percent). Enrollment increased across the state’s technical colleges, where an additional 165 FTE students (2.86 percent) are enrolled this fall compared to the preliminary census day count in 2018.

While overall Fall enrollment is down, the high school student population enrollment is seeing a 2 percent increase over last Fall. The College Start Program at PCC was started as a partnership with area high schools to help their students get a jump start on their college career. These students are provided the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school. High School students are eligible for reduced tuition on all courses (excluding EduKan) and may take Career Technical Education classified courses tuition free.
