There is a surge of full-time students looking to attend Cuesta College this fall. The latest figures from the college show a jump of more than 12 percent enrolling in classes throughout San Luis Obispo County.
The fall semester doesn't begin until mid-August, so there are still several weeks remaining for students to register.
The number of students looking to attend Cuesta took a big hit during the recession as budget cuts created a limited class schedule. Also, concern began to grow over the school's accreditation, forcing some to consider colleges elsewhere.
