St. Clair College has hit a record enrolment number again this year

“The good news story here is we have another record, although it’s almost on par with last year’s enrolment, which was a record,” said Associate Vice President, Student Services and Registrar Michael Silvaggi. “Year-over-year we are plus two students.”

The official Fall 2019 count for full-time post-secondary students is 12,817, compared to 12,815 in 2018. When part-time students are added to the mix, the count increases to over 13,200 students.

“From the institutional standpoint of the short-term stability and long-term sustainability of the College, I’m always encouraged to see strong enrolment numbers,” said President Patti France.

The college reports large enrolment numbers programs offered downtown including in the School of Media, Art and Design, the St. Clair College Centre for the Arts and the Zekelman School of Business and IT.

It total there are 2,836 students enrolled in the downtown programs, compared to just over 900 two years ago.

Overall, there was a 4% increase in international students, for a total of 4,188 students. The number of domestic students totaled 7,552, which includes 1,227 at the Chatham campus. Another 1,077 students were taking classes at the ACE Acumen Academy in Toronto, where St. Clair College programs are offered through a public-private partnership.
