Unscheduled Enrollment Report At October’s Blinn College Trustees Meeting Includes Optimism For Upcoming Semesters

There is some optimism about future enrollment increases at Blinn College.

During Blinn’s October board of trustees meeting, chancellor Mary Hensley said her “encouraging news” as registration begins for winter minimester and spring semester, was that “for the first time in two years, I’m able to say that we’re trending upwards for those registrations as compared to the previous spring.”

The agenda for the October board meeting did not include an enrollment update. Responding to a trustee’s question, Hensley said there was not any significant change in fall enrollment numbers at any Blinn location.

Hensley and chief financial officer Richard Cervantes reminded the trustees that federal money is reimbursing Blinn for enrollment losses during the pandemic.
