Fleming and Seneca partner to expand diploma to degree pathways

Peterborough ON – (May 6, 2021) – Fleming College is strengthening collaborations within the Ontario college sector by expanding its partnership with Seneca. The two institutions have signed a five-year comprehensive agreement to provide Fleming graduates more than 80 pathway options to 12 honours bachelor degree programs at Seneca.

Diploma and advanced diploma graduates from Fleming can continue their education at Seneca in business, child development, marketing, mental health, crime analysis, therapeutic recreation, data sciences and interdisciplinary studies.

Students pursuing Seneca degrees benefit from programs connected to industry and include work-integrated learning opportunities that prepare graduates to excel in their fields. This includes frontline experience in areas of local need such as childhood development and mental health.

“The omnibus agreement provides an opportunity for nearly all of our students to stretch their Fleming diploma further and enhance the value of their credentials even more,” said Maureen Adamson, Fleming College President. “The new pathways significantly build on our already strong partnership with Seneca, and lay the foundation for further collaboration.”

The goals of the newly-established agreement, which went into effect March 1, 2021, are to create opportunities that recognize the value a student’s previous education and provide seamless, accessible and innovative options to further their postsecondary education.

“We are delighted to further our partnership with Fleming and add these new academic pathways within the Ontario college system,” said Seneca President David Agnew. “Fleming graduates who build on their credentials at Seneca will find flexible program delivery and practical learning experiences that will give them the skills and experience to contribute to Canada’s post-pandemic recovery.”
