Why Online Classes Is the “Escape Hatch” for Students in Fast-Growing Regions

Barry Lenson

If you are a student at a community college in an area where the population is growing fast, you have already noticed a troubling reality . . .

Your community college is having a difficult time accommodating the growing number of students would like to enroll.

Where are America’s fastest growing areas? Here are some recent statistics from a post on KSL.com:

Metro Areas with the Greatest Projected Population Growth over the Next Five Years

Note: This list includes metro areas with more than 100,000 households

  1. Provo-Orem, UT 7.4%
  2. Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos, TX 7.4%
  3. Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood, TX 7.2%
  4. Raleigh-Cary, NC 7.2%
  5. San Antonio-New Braunfels, TX 7.1%
  6. Ocala, FL 6.9%
  7. Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, TX 6.7%
  8. Jacksonville, FL 6.6%
  9. Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC 6.6%
  10. McAllen-Edinburg-Mission, TX 6.6%

That rapid growth could help explain why a growing number of American college students are opting to stop standing in line, and start taking courses online. If you need courses that your community college offers, but which are shut down or over-enrolled, you do have an escape hatch you can use: online courses.community college
