Sinclair College Begins Fall Term Building on Success with Focus on Student Services, New Programs and Meeting Workforce Needs

Sinclair Community College’s Fall Term is underway with a continued focus on student success and services and new academic programs aimed at meeting the workforce needs of employers in the region.  

In-person enrollment for Fall Term 2022 is up more than 24% over 2021, while online enrollment has grown nearly 16% over last year. The number of students pursuing Sinclair bachelor’s degrees has grown significantly over 2021 with a 65% increase. 123 Sinclair students are working toward bachelor’s degrees in Aviation Technology/Professional Pilot and Unmanned Aerial Systems.

Currently, overall Fall Term 2022 enrollment is on par with last year.
