The number of students enrolled in Maritime Universities was down 2.3 percent in the 2015-2016 Academic year. The Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission says almost 67-thousand students were attending universities in the three provinces. Enrollment declines were observed in all three provinces but the underlying trends varied from province to province. The decreases are due largely to fewer Maritime residents choosing to enroll in schools this region.
Full-time enrollment at St. FX in 2015-2016 was just shy of 4-thousand students, virtually unchanged from the year before.
