About 370 students from overseas have applied to enroll at Glendale Community College in the fall, making it the highest number of foreign applications ever. College officials predict that up to 190 of those students could end up enrolling for the fall semester. David Nelson, the director of international recruitment and outreach for the college, attributed the increase to steady coordination with overseas educators. "Also being located in the greater Los Angeles area and having an ideal campus location and surroundings … helps attracts students," he said in an email.

Darleene Barrientos Glendale Community College's board of trustees on Monday unanimously approved a $10 tuition increase for nonresident students to keep up with the rising costs of education. Students with an F-1 Visa, or those who have not established residency in California, will begin paying $150 a unit for the fall 2005 semester. There are about 500 international students at the college. "We have had virtually no drop in F-1 enrollment over last year to two years, when many colleges and universities in Southern California have had drops from 5% to 20%, probably because we're perceived as a bargain for being at the low end of the price range," said Steve White, the college's dean of instructional services.

Darleene Barrientos Glendale Community College this year bucked national trends by enrolling 530 international students, up from 504 students last year. Since 9/11, international student enrollment at schools issuing associate degrees declined about 10%, the steepest decline in enrollment at any type of higher education institution. But Glendale Community College resisted that trend, partly because of intensive recruitment and outreach effort, said Jewel Price, the college's dean of student services.

Pasadena City and Glendale Community colleges continue to rank in the top 45 nationwide for recruiting international students, a burgeoning $20 billion-a-year industry that generates revenue, prestige and a wide-reaching alumni base for the campuses. This semester, Pasadena City College enrolled 1,016 students on F-1 visas - issued by the federal government for academic pursuits - college officials said. It's a figure that has remained relatively steady during the last seven years and has consistently placed the Pasadena campus among the top 20 community colleges nationally, according to annual rankings conducted by the Institute of International Education.

Glendale Community College officials have rejected a proposal from a developer to construct an on-campus dormitory, saying that they were unwilling to commit to the long-term land lease and financial obligations that came with the project. In August, Glendale resident and Korean businessman Chang Lee connected the college with WAM Development Group, who pitched a one-year, exclusive right-to-negotiate contract to explore the possibility of building a 175-room residential facility.

About 50 international students organized the fashion show, which celebrated World Culture Week. "It's beautiful, really, just to see everyone around you, showing their culture," Abirafeh said.

It is good to hear that Glendale Community College enrollment is on the rise. I am one of the students that had lots of difficulties enrolling in the college. Many of the students tend to take more units and become a full-time student which is a good sign for an educational center. However, most of those full timers are international students who are obliged to take at least 12 units since they have time limitations to stay in the country and they need to finish their courses quickly.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Amid continuously rising costs, Glendale Community College is forecasting a $4.5-million to $5-million deficit for the 2010-11 year, which could trigger another series of bargaining and concessions with employee groups, officials said. Faculty and employees at the college have already agreed to a number of concessions to preserve this year’s budget after the college spent $2.2 million in reserves to close its 2009-10 deficit. Costs typically increase by $1.5 million as employees get raises or benefits are renewed.

A proposal to build a dormitory for several hundred international students at Glendale Community College appeared to falter before even making it out of the starting block this week as stakeholders voiced concerns over parking and liability issues. The concept for the dormitory was born out of a “sister city” relationship forged in 2009 between Glendale and Goseong, South Korea. As part of that tie, Glendale Community College President/Supt. Dawn Lindsay and Goseong Mayor Hak-lul Lee in November signed an agreement to allow Goseong youth to bypass bureaucratic red tape and enroll at the college.
