For the eighth straight semester, enrollment is up at UNM-Los Alamos. According to UNM-LA’s Institutional Researcher Valida Dushdurova, headcount is 6.8 percent higher in Fall 2010 than Fall 2009. Student credit hours and full time enrollment numbers are both up 9.6 percent over last year.
The campus struggled with falling enrollment from 2004 to Spring 2008. Sources at UNM-LA point to two factors contributing to this drop in enrollment — Northern New Mexico College became a four-year school, able to grant bachelor’s degrees and Los Alamos National Laboratory changed its policies affecting reimbursement and time off for enrolling in classes.
What has contributed to the increase in enrollment? Dr. Patricia Boyer, director of Student Services at UNM-LA points to teamwork on the part of her staff and the UNM-LA faculty.
“UNM-LA Student Services staff and faculty have created an enrollment management plan to increase enrollments. This plan and the necessary collaboration has not only erased the barriers between faculty and staff, but has also resulted in productive, fun, hands-on activities for our ‘college seeking’ high school and junior high school students throughout northern New Mexico,” she said.
