Student Demographics graphic 


 With the soaring cost of attending four-year universities, more and more local families are turning to College of the Canyons for local higher education at a fraction of the cost of state universities. 

• Our student enrollment continues to grow – in the past 10 years, enrollment has increased to about 20,000 students and is expected to reach 30,000 students in a little more than a decade. 

• We need to ensure that our top-ranked college can keep up with the local demand and continue providing the highest-quality education for our students. ​

• Students often cannot get the courses they need – every semester, we have approximately 4,000 students on waiting lists. 

• Local companies need access to training to ensure they remain competitive in their industries. 

• More classrooms and science facilities and labs are needed at the Canyon Country and Valencia campuses.​​​​
