College of DuPage exceeds spring enrollment expectations

GLEN ELLYN — Enrollment at College of DuPage (COD) in Glen Ellyn this spring exceeded the college's expectations, with full-time enrollment up 3.8 percent, enrollment of students taking credited courses up 2.3 percent and total enrollment, including non-credit students, up 1.6 percent, compared to last spring.

“We are thrilled with these numbers, which exceeded our expectations and directly reflect what we have known all along – College of DuPage is the best higher education value around,” said COD President Robert L. Breuder, who pointed to the increase in total enrollment as indicating growth in the college's non-traditional and non-credit programs.

COD has undergone other growth lately, as a $550 million construction project at the campus nears completion. Since 2009, the college also has implemented 49 new certificate and degree programs and 12 new programs that enable students to earn affordable bachelor's degrees for other universities on the COD campus.
