Sinclair Kicks Off New School Year with record enrollment numbers

Sinclair kicked off its fall quarter on Monday with record enrollment numbers for all of the college’s campuses. Overall, enrollment is up nine percent with new student enrollment up 22 percent.

“This is a great fall for us,” said Dr. Steven Lee Johnson, president of Sinclair. “We are breaking enrollment records across campuses and learning disciplines. It is an exciting time.”

At this time Sinclair has over 23,000 students enrolled for the fall quarter. Each of its campuses are experiencing growth. The volume of students’ enrollment is up as follows:

• Downtown campus is up six percent from fall 2007.
• Huber Heights Learning Center is up 27 percent from fall 2007.
• Englewood Learning Center is up 41 percent from fall 2007.
• Courseview Campus Center is up 144 percent from fall 2007.

In addition, the college is experiencing tremendous growth in distance learning with a 36% increase in students taking classes online.

“This is exactly the kind of growth we need to stay on track with the State of Ohio Master Plan for Higher Education,” added Johnson.

There will be some enrollment fluctuation through September 22 when the enrollment numbers become final.
