Western Technical College said it has more students taking classes this spring than the previous year.

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Western Technical College said it has more students taking classes this spring than the previous year. 

WTC released its enrollment data Thursday morning. 

It shows that enrollment is up 4.6 percent from the 2021 Spring Term. That translates into 1,022.73 full-time equivalent students. Adding in part-time students, the total enrollment at WTC for the spring is 3,488. 

According to the college, approximately one-third of the students are in at least one blended or hybrid course and one-third are in at least one face-to-face class. 

“Because so many industries are looking for skilled labor, these enrollment figures are not surprising,” said Western President Roger Stanford in a statement. “As we continue to offer class formats that meet our students’ needs, we are finding more students return to higher education.”
