Enrollment at FLCC reaches 36-year high at 2,637

Finger Lakes Community College Wednesday reported it has reached its highest student enrollment in the 36-year history of the two-year college.
A total of 2,637 full-time students are enrolled this semester, an increase of 105 people, or 4.1 percent, over the fall 2003 enrollment.
The increase illustrates the need for additional space, said Daniel Hayes, president of FLCC. For the past two years, the college has had to add temporary classrooms at its Canandaigua campus, he said.
More than 83 percent of all full-time enrollment at the college comes from the five-county region: Ontario, 41 percent; Wayne, 18 percent; Monroe, 9 percent, and Seneca and Yates, each 8 percent.
The college reported that 64 percent of full-time students and 21 percent of part-time students have enrolled in FLCC’s associate in arts and associate in science transfer degree programs that prepare graduates to pursue four-year degrees.
“We believe that this increase in enrollment reflects the value of the education FLCC provides,” Hayes said. “Our faculty and staff remain committed to providing personal attention to ensure students’ success.”
