CBC's first day, full-time equivalent student enrollment totaled 5,524 compared to 5,186 for the first day in fall 2012, an increase of five percent. The total number of students attending classes on the first day was 7,088. Leading the way is a 12 percent increase in Running Start enrollment, up to 851 students.

Fall quarter continues through December 12.
