Missouri Southern sees increase in summer enrollment

Updated:

News release issued by Missouri Southern State University:

JOPLIN, MO (SNS) - Summer enrollment numbers have taken a jump at Missouri Southern State University.

Officials at Missouri Southern are reporting increases in the total number of students attending classes as well as the total number of hours taken for the summer semester.

Dr. Delores Honey, assistant vice president for Assessment & Institutional Research, said headcounts in every undergraduate level increased this summer compared to the numbers of 2012. 

The increase in overall enrollment indicates that more current and/or returning students are attending summer school.

Darren Fullerton, vice president for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management said total headcount has increased by 4.5 percent compared to last summer.  

Fullerton also stated that the University has also seen a  3.1 percent increase in the credit hours.

"There are several factors that have helped this summer's enrollment, including adjustments to the course schedules and the Lion Pride Tuition Program," Fullerton said.   

The Lion Pride tuition program now offers more students from Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Illinois in-state tuition, which may account for the jump in out of state students. Out-of-state enrollment has increased since the Lion Pride Program was initiated. 

The number of out-of-state students this summer increased by 79 students and 405 credit hours, compared to summer 2012.

"We are excited about the summer enhancements, and the faculty and staff look forward to assisting more students with these initiatives," said Fullerton.
