AVC expects over 14,000 students for the upcoming fall semester

Posted: August 11, 2014

Antelope Valley College continues to rebound from state budget cuts with 14,100 students registered, as of Monday, for the upcoming fall semester. The college expects this number to increase between now and the August 18 start of instruction.

Passage of proposition 30 in 2012 allowed for the restoration of courses at community colleges across the state. AVC responded with increased class offerings in 2013/14 school year and again for the upcoming semester. The college is currently scheduled to offer over 1,640 class sections, about 5% more than last fall.

“We are trying to do a better job of sequencing courses, so students can move through their program of study better,” said President Ed Knudson. “Just like a business might determine its product mix, we are doing the same with our courses; taking a look at where the demand is and then trying to meet that need the best we can.”

To better serve the needs of the greater Antelope Valley community, the college has continued to increase its offerings at the Palmdale Center. This semester, 155 course sections are being offered at the 1529 E. Palmdale Blvd. location.
