Students enrolling less and taking lighter course loads at Michigan community colleges

Detroit Free Press
Fewer students are enrolling and others are taking lighter class loads at Michigan's community colleges, the result of federal worker retraining money drying up and health care reform that expanded a student exception to insurance rules.

Federal health care law now allows part-time students to stay on their parents' health insurance policies, which could account for a decline in credit hours as students look to save money by paring class loads.

Enrollment at Michigan's 28 community colleges is down 4% compared to last fall, and the number of credit hours taken is down 6%.

Falling credit hours is a bigger deal to school officials than enrollment, because tuition revenue is based on classes taken and not enrollment.

Some colleges planned for the losses and budgeted accordingly. Others say they have had to reduce adjunct instructors and make cuts.
