College Costs

In January 2014, The Grapevine released their annual review of changes in state support for higher education. Their reported statistics for Connecticut showed that the state is attempting to catch up after years of decline in public financing, but they remain in a negative position. Between 2012 and 2014, Connecticut increased their financial support for higher education by 6.3%. This included a 5.5% increase during 2014. However, their financing over the five year period ending in 2014 is down 3.4%. In February 2014, Gov. Dannel Malloy pledged another $135 million targeted to students who had dropped out of public colleges in Connecticut, with the promise that if they paid for one course, the state would pay for up to three more.

College Enrollment

Enrollment in Connecticut colleges declined in 2013, something state officials were anticipating. After record enrollments every year since 2001, Connecticut had 897 fewer students enrolled in 2013 than in 2012. Most of the decline was at public colleges, with private colleges seeming to hold their own. Part time students made up most of the loss, which officials feel may be a sign people are finding jobs and getting back to work. This loss was in line with national trends also showing declines in enrollment.
