Last year Sheridan College broke its all time enrollment record. It looks like they’re going to shatter that record again this year. The catch is that the college district will have to serve more students with less money this year. Sheridan College President Kevin Drumm says that enrollments in Campbell County have risen by more than 40%.
After taking budget cuts already this year, how will the college district provide for even larger classes?
One possible scenario would have the Northern Wyoming Community College District dramatically increase tuition and fees to cover the cost of serving the increased student body. The Board of Trustees did not consider that option at this time, because it could limit accessibility to college resources.
