New numbers from Red River College today show that fall enrolment is up 3.3%, which is another record high compared to this time last year.
Enrolment is also up in full-time programs by 16.8% at RRC’s five regional campuses, located in Steinbach, Portage la Prairie, Gimli, Winkler and Peguis/Fisher River.
With the increase in students, officials say it’s a challenge finding room to accommodate them.
“For several years now we’ve been operating essentially full,” explained Dr. Jeff Zabudsky, President of Red River College. “Through creative scheduling and program delivery we’ve managed to make room, but the time has come to expand the College to meet student and industry demand.”
Information about continuing and distance education enrolments is expected to be released later this week.
