College sees four per cent growth over last fall
Okanagan College is again seeing fall student enrolment grow.
The total number of students enrolled in programs at Okanagan College’s four major campuses has climbed by almost four per cent compared to last year. A total of 8,329 students were registered in programs and courses on the College’s stable enrolment date (Sept. 16, the last date students could register and change classes).
Last fall the College had 8,005 students enrolled.
“The indications are that we are experiencing another strong year,” explains Okanagan College President Jim Hamilton. “We can likely expect that this will be the 12th consecutive year that we exceed government’s total enrolment targets. More importantly the strong demand for our programming indicates we are providing relevant and valuable education for our communities, and that’s what is most important to us.”
