For the first time in the history of Lord Fairfax Community College, enrollment has exceeded 7,000 students. As of October 13, 2010 the College had a total of 7,045 students enrolled in its credit programs. Thousands more are enrolled in non-credit and workforce programs.
“This is an historic moment for LFCC,” said College President, Dr. Cheryl Thompson-Stacy. “Reaching this enrollment milestone is the result of years of effort by LFCC staff, faculty and administration to provide programs and opportunities that meet the needs of our communities.”
Since fall of 2009, LFCC Middletown Campus enrollment has increased by 6% and LFCC Fauquier Campus by 4%. The number of students enrolled solely in online courses jumped 24% increase and there was a 12% increase in dual-enrollment students. This is the second straight year of significant enrollment increases for LFCC. The College experienced an increase of 13% from fall 2008 to fall 2009.
According to Dr. Thompson-Stacy, “The demand for the programs associated with increased enrollment indicates the importance of LFCC to the localities we serve.”
