School sees an 11.2 percent increase in applications from Ontario secondary school students this year.

Brock University is reporting an increase in applications from graduating high school students in the province. 

Officials say as of the January 13th deadline, the school has received an 11.2 percent increase in submissions, which is nearing pre-pandemic levels of enrolment interest. 

Brock Interim President Lynn Wells says this is optimistic news for Brock. 

"While it’s still very early in the recruitment cycle, this level of interest from Ontario high school students tells us that students have persevered in their studies through difficult pandemic conditions and are ready to continue their journey with Brock University as their home," Wells says. "It’s also an important testament to the steps we have taken to make our campus safe this year, including our vaccine mandate. Brock continues to put the health and safety of our campus community at the forefront of everything we do, while also ensuring that students are provided with the high-quality education and on-campus experience they’ve come to expect from us."

Next on the application schedule are the deadlines for college transfers and international students, as well as the June 1st deadline to accept offers from Brock.
