Great news for Fleming College—and Peterborough—as the college has kicked off 2017 with record winter enrollment. Overall, first-semester intake was 1,238 students, the highest in the College’s 50-year history. The previous record high for winter start-up was 1,081 students in 2013. Winter enrollment for all students—both new and returning—is up three percent over 2016.
FLEMING ALSO WELCOMES RECORD NUMBER OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
Fleming also announced a record number of international students to its campuses. More than 460 new international students—including 135 students at Frost Campus in Lindsay—started at the College this January, an increase of 130 percent over January 2016. This increases the total number of international students by 70 percent to 874, with students attending from more than 25 different countries.
“We are absolutely pleased to welcome all of our new students to Fleming College," says Fleming College President Tony Tilly. "Our campus communities are thriving, diverse and collaborative—key aspects of an inspiring learning environment."
The College experienced growth across a broad spectrum of programs—and most of Fleming’s academic schools saw a surge in new students.
More than half of Fleming’s 100-plus full-time programs offer a January start. Students can study through the summer and start third semester with the fall cohort. This intake ensures a flexible option for students of all ages.
For students interested in starting at Fleming this fall, the deadline for equal consideration is approaching. Prospective students are encouraged to apply by February 1st to secure a seat in the program of their choice for fall 2017.
