Tri-C Westshore reports record enrollment

The Westshore Campus of Cuyahoga Community College posted record enrollment numbers this fall, continuing the growth seen since the academic center opened in 2011.

Enrollment at the Westlake campus climbed to 2,218 for the current fall semester, a 1.6 percent uptick from last year. Fall-to-fall registration at Westshore has now increased five times in seven years.

“The growth reflects how residents increasingly look to Tri-C to fill their educational needs,” Westshore Campus President Terri Pope said. “People know they can come here for an affordable and quality academic experience that prepares them for a lifetime of success.”

The rising headcount underscores the need for the new Westshore Campus Center, an 89,000-square-foot building under construction at the Clemens Road site. The building will feature more than 30 classrooms and specialized labs to meet the community’s educational demands.

Construction of the Campus Center and related renovations to the existing building should be complete by next fall.
