    Moraine Park Technical College President John Shanahan recently announced a five and a half percent increase in enrollment for the College's 2001-2002 school year.

     Shanahan attributes the increase to a variety of factors including new program offerings, increased retention efforts, and ease of registration, in particular the addition of online registration. Moraine Park is the first technical college in the state to offer online registration.

    "Our staff work very hard to make Moraine Park as accessible as possible to everyone in our district, and those efforts are paying off in enrollment increases," said Shanahan. "I also believe our online program offerings are playing a big role in the increase."

    Six new online programs as well as general education courses were offered for the first time this fall; and already more than 700 students have enrolled. The programs include Basic Clinical Coding Specialist Certificate, Legal Office Skills Certificate, Computer Information Systems (CIS) - Micro Programmer Specialist, Web Developer, Emergency Dispatch and Water Wastewater. General education courses are also available online.
