Play associated audio

WASHINGTON (AP) The only community college in the nation's capital is showing early signs of success after splitting off from the University of the District of Columbia.

The new school under UDC's umbrella has rising enrollment and is retaining more students past the first year.

After its first 11 months, the college is slowly increasing its offerings. It has more than 35 full-time faculty members and two dozen degree and certificate programs.

The Community College of D.C. also has to compete with two-year schools in the suburbs because of the grant program that gives D.C. students money if they want to study elsewhere.

This fall, many of the school's programs will relocate to a building near Union Station. Future locations will include sites in northeast and southeast Washington.
