"It's a welcome change,"said David Devier, president of Glen Oaks.
"We have been working extremely hard to strategize and implement changes to better meet the needs of our student population."
pointed to several factors that may have contributed to the increase.
"In the last year, we have added new associate and certificate degree programs, reintroduced programs that had previously been shut down when interest was low, and formed new partnerships with four-year institutions to help create pathways for programs," he said.
In addition, many programs are now offered in a variety of formats, Devier
said, such as online, evening classes, open-entry/open-exit lab concept, in an effort to offer more flexibility to students, specifically those in the workforce.
