Rural branches of College of Southern Idaho see growth
BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — Enrollment at the College of Southern Idaho’s main branch is flat this year, but college officials say the more rural branch campuses are seeing an increase in the number of degree-seeking students.
The Times-News reports CSI’s Mini-Cassia Center in Burley has 16 percent more degree-seeking students enrolled this year compared to last. Similar number boosts are occurring at the branches in Hailey, Gooding and Jerome.
Associate Dean Chris Bragg says the official numbers at all campuses won’t be available until after Oct. 15. But he says so far it appears the enrollment at the main campus in Twin Falls is flat.
The college serves both degree-seeking students and high school students who are taking dual credit classes.
