Virginia Peninsula – Enrollment at Thomas Nelson Community College’s Newport News-based Southeast Higher Education Center has increased more than 180 percent since it opened last fall. From its 5720 Marshal Ave. location, the Center gives students an opportunity to work toward earning a career certificate or starting an associate degree program.
The College established the Southeast Higher Education Center in association with An Achievable Dream Middle and High School and the Newport News Public School System offering evening and weekend courses to adult learners.
The Center went from an enrollment of 68 students last fall to 191 at the end of spring 2008 – an increase of 181 percent, according to statistics from TNCC’s Office of Institutional Research and Strategic Planning. Currently, 23 students are attending summer classes at the Southeast Center and to date 51 have registered for the upcoming fall semester. These figures represent unduplicated headcount which is the actual number of students taking classes at the Center.
