The College is anticipating another year of record enrollment. New students should process their deposits immediately to secure their seats in the College’s top programs.
SUNY Canton has broken its all-time record for applications for the third straight year and has received more than 6,000 applications for the first time in school history. As a result, Admissions Director Nicole Campbell is anticipating a fifth straight year of record-breaking enrollment.
“It’s a terrific accomplishment to sustain and build on the incredible momentum we’ve set over the past several years,” Campbell said. “We won’t have complete enrollment numbers until the semester begins, but it looks like we may top 4,000 students for the first time in school history. And while a lot of credit should go to our experienced admissions counselors, it truly is a college-wide effort and a reflection of our remarkable collective success.”
Total applicants and deposits have both increased since last year when the College shattered previous records in nearly every admissions category.
“There are a variety of reasons why our numbers continue to increase each year,” said Vice President for Advancement David M. Gerlach. “We continue to add more in-demand, career-oriented bachelor’s degrees, we have a new athletic facility, a new residence hall, and a student-first approach to everything we do. Those reasons coupled with our affordability make us more attractive to incoming students than we have ever been.”
To date, SUNY Canton has received more than 6,300 applications for the upcoming academic year, an increase of more than 20 percent from the same time last year and up almost 150 percent from just six years ago.
New students planning to begin during the Fall 2012 semester should process their deposits immediately to secure their seats in the College’s top programs.
