A Clarification on Enrollment Priority

January 30, 2012

You may have seen this ABC7 piece in which I can be seen talking about enrollment priority and ensuring that current students aren’t penalized, nor should students who change their educational goal mid way be completely cut off. Prior to my appearance in the piece, Melissa MacBride states that currently enrollment priority goes to people with 100+ units. While this is true, this isn’t because 100 is the magic number. Enrollment priority at most colleges (not all, but PCC is one of them) is calculated for current students based on the number of units earned. The more you have, the higher the priority. That doesn’t mean that students under 100 units have no priority.

My comment, incidentally, was more geared to the SSTF recommendation which states that students who reach 110 units would lose their BOG fee waiver, and students who reach 10 would lose enrollment priority. More on ASPCC’s position on the Student Success Task Force recommendations will be coming in the next couple of weeks.
