Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - Lake Superior College is on its way to setting another fall semester enrollment record when classes begin on Monday.

College officials expect at least a 5% increase in enrolled students this fall – an improvement over last year’s record fall enrollment of 4,550, according to a news release from the college on Friday.

Approximately 1,200 of the students are new enrollees, taking their first classes at LSC.

“Our fall enrollment numbers are strong,” said Lake Superior College President Pat Johns. “We project that we’ll have more than 4,750 students enrolled by end of day Monday, equaling an FTE (Full-Time Equivalent) enrollment of more than 3,150.”

Official enrollment numbers will not be announced until the 30th day of the term.

LSC provides a wide range of programs and services, including liberal arts and science courses for transfer, technical programs intended to provide occupational skills, continuing education, and customized training for business and industry. LSC is also a leader in Internet-delivered courses and programs in Minnesota.
