Great Bend, KS – EduKan, a consortium of the six western community colleges in Kansas, reports the largest enrollment in the institution’s 11 year history.  “We offer our students ten different sessions each year to match the needs of our students,” says Dr. Mark Sarver, EduKan’s Director.  “The session that begins in January is usually one of our largest, this year it was the largest in our institutions history.”  Enrollment is up by 9.14% over the previously highest enrollment and overall enrollment is up 10.3% ahead of last year.

EduKan provides online associates degrees and general education classes to students in Kansas and across the United States.  “We are seeing a lot more students coming from out of state, especially California where the state’s budget deficit is reducing the number of classes being taught by their community colleges; our out of state enrollment is up by 7% through word of mouth advertising by our students.”
