CLC enrollment on the rise, bucking statewide trend - Theresa Bourke, Brainerd Dispatch

The community college has seen a 1.4% increase this year from the previous fall. Despite downward trends in enrollment at schools in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, Central Lakes College is moving in the opposite direction. “In fact, we have such a number of OER (open educational resources) courses that a student can actually get an AA degree and not pay for a single textbook,” Preimesberger said. “And we refer to that frequently as our Z Degree, meaning zero cost degree.”
