Paul D. Camp Community College recently held sessions for new and returning students in order to assist them in a “one-stop shop” atmosphere to register and prepare for the fall 2018 semester. “In the three days in which the sessions were held, we increased FTEs (full-time enrollments) by 49 and headcount by 22,” said Dean of Student Services Trina Jones.

“In an effort to continue increasing our enrollment numbers, the student services team will host another series of Enrollment Days events during the week of Aug. 13.” 

During this time, current students and potential students can attend to discuss career and academic options and register for fall classes, in addition to taking the placement test on-site and planning with financial aid staff.

The events will be as follows:

• Franklin Campus, 100 North College Drive: Monday, Aug. 13, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
