Recruitment/Prep/OutreachA second major recommendation was made Spring 2017: Guided Career Pathways. After reviewing past enrollment data, EMC asked whether we could enroll more students, including parents of school aged children, students with summer jobs, and “bounce backs” from four year colleges, if we started the fall semester after Labor Day. EMC forwarded the “Post-Labor Day start” recommendation in September 2016.June 2016 Follow up meeting with M&C, Admissions, Career Services, Advising, and PSAT Associate Dean—initiate efforts.Cabinet approved the recommendation in fall 2016 and the BOT approved a change to the academic calendar for the 2017-18 academic year.*Enrollment for fall was higher than initially projected for new and current students. Enrollment of students in the five days before the start of classes and late student enrollment were both down compared to the previous year.
