Thank you for working hard to stabilize enrollments!

Fiscal sustainability and enrollment stabilization are going to remain two of the college’s major goals for the next few years and we’re going to become very focused on improving enrollment management strategies to maximize our resources.  Thanks to the hard work of several faculty, staff, managers and administrators the college is moving forward with several initiatives to increase FTES and stabilize our revenue. Those initiatives include:


  1. Offering credit and non-credit course in the Pelican Bay State Prison.
  2. Expanding our credit and non-credit course offerings with Del Norte, Lost Coast and St. Bernards High Schools as well as with Eureka Community School, Education Resource Center and the Multigenerational Center in Fortuna.
  3. Leasing space from Eureka City Schools for concurrent enrollment courses and to offer courses to the public.
  4. Converting the specialized ceramics classroom on the Del Norte campus to a general purpose classroom that will be used to schedule classes to match the Del Norte High School bell schedule. This will increase concurrent enrollment opportunities.
  5. Partnering with Humboldt State University to offer remedial/basic skills non-credit math courses for HSU students.
  6. Equipping a computer lab at the Job Market in downtown Eureka to provide non-credit courses to individuals looking for work.
  7. Expanding non-credit courses offerings at the Humboldt County Jail.
  8. Finishing the installation of Telepresence equipment in Eureka, Del Norte and Klamath-Trinity to support distance delivery of classes.
  9. Adding large format modular classrooms to the Eureka campus to accommodate larger class sizes.
  10. Sending a CR team to participate in the Enrollment Management workshop in August sponsored by the Chancellor’s Office.
  11. Using the Education Advisory Board (EAB) to complete a diagnostic audit of our enrollment process, identify the most urgent pain points, provide best practice case studies and assist our staff in developing a well-defined roadmap to fix problem areas.
  12. Implementing the student planning module and retention alert system that will help students stay committed to their educational goals.
  13. Reinstating men’s soccer in fall 2015 and starting sand volleyball in spring 2016.
  14. Implementing advertising tactics not previously used such as bus ads, billboards and Pandora radio.
