Many high school and college students aren’t taking a break this summer as Redlands Community College is seeing a 9.9% increase in enrollment for the current eight-week session. With an increase in several areas, enrollment is up 23.7% in concurrent students and 4.8% in sophomores.
“The summer session is a great opportunity for high school students to get a jump start on college credit and for current college students, particularly those who have returned home for the summer, to knock out a few more credit hours,” said Redlands President Jena Marr. “With our affordable tuition and fees plus the fact many of our general education courses use free e-textbooks, students are saving time and money by taking courses during the summer.”
Through the concurrent enrollment program, eligible high school juniors can begin taking college courses the summer after their sophomore year. By the time they graduate, these high school students can earn up to 27 credit hours tuition free.
College students, who have returned home for the summer, are taking courses at Redlands and will transfer those credits when they return to their campuses in the Fall.
“We enjoy helping other college students find a place here at Redlands for the summer, and we are excited to help our current students stay on track to earn their degrees in a timely manner that will save them money,” added Dr. Jennifer Alt, executive director of Student Services and Grants.
