Guam - While students at Guam's public schools have a few more days of summer vacation, the island's two post-secondary schools - the University of Guam and the Guam Community College - started the first day of fall semester today. According to GCC president Mary Okada, the college's enrollment is consistent with last semester's.

"As of this morning we do have enrollment of 2,425 students just slightly down from last semester of 2,478, but there is a little bit of difference between what happened this semester and last year we did institute a 10% tuition increase, but we also recognized that as of yesterday we had over 650 new students," she explained. "So we know that even if we graduated students last year there are new students coming to the college."

Okada expects more students will register in the next few days because of the ongoing add/drop period.
