Student Life at Fleming College

Student Life is committed to welcoming and supporting students. Through our programs and services, students will have a successful transition to college and access to opportunities throughout their time at Fleming, to Get Involved and Stay Connected!

Co-Curricular Record (CCR)

Create your own record of approved out of classroom experiences at Fleming to track your leadership development, volunteer work and in some instances even your on campus paid jobs. This record will be validated by Fleming staff and you can use it to reflect on and clearly illustrate your experiences at Fleming College. You can print and use the record to complement your resume, assist you in professional language and contribute ideas to help you promote yourself during interviews. Employers can also verify your record using a unique authenticity code located on your printed record.

The CCR has integrated with the Career Services portal to give you a one-stop shop for job opportunities and tracking of your CCR. If you have a current login that you use for the Career Services portal, you should use it to login to the site. If you have never been on the Career Services portal before, you will need to create an account before you get started at www.flemingcollegeccr.ca

If you have questions about the CCR you can email: ccr@flemingcollege.ca

Welcome Days

Each summer, Fleming College welcomes new students to the Sutherland and Frost Campuses to help them "Get a Jump on September" before classes begin.

Students will have the opportunity to make arrangements for financial aid, parking, meal plans, lockers, student identification and more. The college will offer student and parent sessions designed to support the transition to college and we offer guided tours of the campus, residences and the Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre. Mandatory Assess for Success testing will be available for students to complete during Welcome Days as well, if testing has not been completed prior to attendance at Welcome Days.

Students and their families can even experience what it's like to stay in residence with accommodation available for one night before or after their visit to the college.
