SUNY Canton’s Summer Session has reached an enrollment record for the second year in a row.
The college saw approximately 1,782 enrollments as of June 2, a day after courses began. Comparatively, the college had 1743 Summer Session enrollments last year and 1550 in 2013.
The college uses enrollments to measure overall growth of its supplementary sessions to count students who have enrolled in more than one course. Approximately 1,130 students enrolled in about 160 courses this year.
“Our online Summer Session and Winterterm courses help students finish in four years,” said Molly A. Mott, dean of academic support services and instructional technologies. “Many students from other colleges often enroll in our courses to fulfill their general education requirements. The courses help SUNY Canton support SUNY System-wide goals for access and completion.”
The top three colleges with students enrolled in Summer Session other than SUNY Canton were Syracuse University, SUNY Binghamton and SUNY Albany. The majority of courses are offered online, allowing students to continue with summer jobs and vacations while completing their coursework.
SUNY Canton offers the same high-quality instruction as a traditional classroom setting. “Our faculty members present interesting courses on in-demand topics in a very accessible format,” Mott said.
