Enrollment at Illinois community colleges increased for the second straight year according to the annual fall enrollment report released Monday by the Illinois Community College Board.

The ICCB says the Fall 2022 to Fall 2023 increase of 5.7 percent is the second largest Fall-to-Fall enrollment growth in the last 30 years.

But, it was a different story across the institutions serving southern Illinois.

Kaskaskia and Southeastern Illinois Colleges saw modest increases in enrollment, but John A. Logan, Rend Lake and Shawnee Colleges all reported fewer students from Fall 2022.

It was also a mixed bag for the Illinois Easter Community College system with a major increase at Frontier Community College and a small one at Olney Central, but there were enrollment declines at Lincoln Trail and Wabash Valley.
