One month into fall term, about 6,000 students across the state are taking community college classes through the Oregon Promise.
That’s according to preliminary enrollment figures provided by state education officials and updated figures confirmed by several colleges.
That headcount is right about what state officials anticipated for the first-year program, which helps defer tuition costs for eligible high school seniors who chose to attend community college.
