York College President Steve Eckman announced this week that the spring semester enrollment numbers are up 17% from spring 2009.  “These numbers show that we have retained 91% of the students eligible to return.” This past fall semester, York College enjoyed an 8% increase in student enrollment.  Eckman continued, “We are on track to enjoy financial stability at a time when many schools are struggling.” 

“There is always a drop off of students between the fall and spring semesters,” said Willie Sanchez, Director of Admissions.  “This can be attributed to a number of things.  For example, some students discover they are just not ready for the rigor of higher education, and some graduate in the fall.  The good news is that we recruited more new students for the spring semester than graduated.  That really helped our numbers.” 

Eckman, praised the faculty, staff and coaches for their hard work in retaining students, “The work that is being done shows the spirit of sacrifice and service that has characterized York College for so many years. The Lord continues to bless this place and is rewarding our mission to transform lives.”
