Blinn College enrollment through the first five weeks of the Fall semester is already above all of last year’s Fall semester. That is despite a drop of more than five hundred on the Bryan campus.
Vice chancellor Becky McBride told the board of trustees that there was not a shift of Bryan students going to Blinn’s RELLIS campus, which continues to have record growth.
Blinn’s RELLIS campus has more than 3,800 students this fall. That is an increase of more than seven hundred from last year.
This Fall’s enrollment in Bryan is just over six thousand. That’s less than half of the more than 13 thousand on the Bryan campus nine years ago.
The district wide total of just over 18,000 is the most since Fall of 2019, the last semester before the start of the pandemic. That number will grow as recruiting continues for more four and eight week classes and Blinn’s announcement that the first classes in Waller starts next month.
