Roughly 12.5 percent fewer students are taking classes this winter at Jackson Community College compared to a year ago, keeping the college’s enrollment numbers at 2006 levels.

JCC’s winter decline, though, is in line with the 11 percent enrollment drop from the fall semester and at figures adjusted then, said Cindy Allen, vice president of administration.

JCC’s enrollment snapshot for the first 10 days of classes this winter shows that 5,795 students are taking classes compared to 6,623 students for the first 10 days of classes in winter 2012.
