DOWAGIAC — The school year hasn’t started yet, but Southwestern Michigan College officials are anticipating fall enrollment to be stable and not decline, as it is at other community colleges around the state.

President David Mathews told SMC board members this week that the college is at 99.1 percent of its fall enrollment goal, with 1,906 students registered as of Monday. He said the college had budgeted for enrollment to stay the same as last fall, when 1,922 students had registered two weeks before the start of classes.
