A huge demand is forcing COCC to close its admissions. College officials say despite continued efforts to add classrooms and both part-time and full-time faculty positions; Central Oregon Community College is unable to continue to accommodate the number of registrations. They are closing the admissions process for fall term as of 8 a.m. on Monday, March 21, one week before the beginning of the term. COCC has grown from about 4,200 students per quarter to 7,500 in the current term. The college has closed admissions earlier several terms in the last two years. Each quarter in the past two years, between 200 and 400 students have applied for admissions but been unable to register for a single course.
