California community college officials eye ordering enrollment data

California community college system officials have trouble collecting data from local colleges across the state on key issues such as enrollment, campus police, and application fraud. And now, the state chancellor’s office wants the governing council to force local colleges to respond.

The rector’s office overseeing the 116 community colleges in California plans to do so by creating new state regulations that would require local colleges to respond within 10 days when the rector’s office requests data or other information.

The community college system, the largest in the country with about 1.5 million students, has not been able in recent semesters to fully report enrollment in its colleges. The inability of the system to accurately report enrollment arose after the start of the pandemic, when community colleges across California and across the country saw double-digit enrollment losses. System officials attributed much of the problem to the challenges of having certain students take credit-free online courses.
