Members of the Colby Community College Board of Trustees received good news during a special meeting held June 13. EduKan Executive Director Dr. Mark Sarver reported that the consortium of six community colleges experienced a significant increase in enrollments last year.

“EduKan passed the 13,000 credit hour mark,” said Dr. Sarver. “Our online enrollments from out-of-state students have increased by over 36 percent with students in 43 states.”

The EduKan online consortium consisting of Colby, Garden City, Dodge City, Seward County, Pratt and Barton County Community Colleges provides students the opportunity to obtain a complete associate degree online.

Students who enroll in EduKan classes select one of the six community colleges as their “home” institution. CCC accounts for approximately 18 percent of EduKan students.

Profits are divided equally among the six schools. Dr. Sarver presented a check for $50,000 to the Trustees at the meeting.

“We will be reviewing the financial situation this fall and hope to provide an additional $30,000 to each school at that time,” said Dr. Sarver.

Tuition for an EduKan class will be increased by $5 to $130 per credit hour for 2011-12. For more information visit the web site at www.edukan.org
