Texas State Technical College isn't accepting new students this semester at its Brownsville campus because too few students enrolled.

A school official says the college may stop classes at the site permanently if it cannot generate enough interest by the spring.

Since 2004, the college has been offering classes at the the University of Texas Brownsville-Texas Southmost College.

TSTC had 35 students this fall at the International Technology, Education and Commerce Campus. Seven of those were new registrants, but the school needed ten to have a new freshman class. The seven will be asked to commute to Harlingen if they continue, The Brownsville Herald reports.

Pat Hobbs, vice president of instruction, says he thinks the problem is a decrease in new students enrolled at universities and colleges.
