Enrollment jumps at Missouri Southern State University

JOPLIN, MO (SNS) - In an upswing that demonstrates the success of the Lion Pride Tuition Discount (In-State tuition for all of the Four-State area), and various other enrollment initiatives, Missouri Southern State University has officially recorded a 3.7 percent increase in students this fall.

The Office of Institutional Research reported the numbers to the Missouri Department of Higher Education on Monday, recording an enrollment of 5,616 students, up from 5,417 one year ago.

Also up by 2.5 percent is the number of credit hours taken by students. This fall, MSSU students are enrolled in 65,962 credit hours, up from 64, 359 last fall.

“This is tremendous news, and it speaks volumes about our incredible faculty and staff. It also reflects a broad appreciation for the outstanding programs offered by this terrific group of professionals,” said Dr. Alan Marble, interim president of MSSU.

“Missouri Southern’s affordability has been nationally recognized and it is certainly making a difference to an increasing number of students in this region. They are choosing MSSU’s programs and the value this institution provides in ever greater numbers.”

Darren Fullerton, vice president of enrollment management and student affairs, pointed to increases in a few key areas – full-time students increased by 2.5%, part-time & dual credit students increased by 7 percent, out-of-state students by 14.7 percent, and International students increased by 26.8percent.

“MSSU faculty and staff have been working hard on enhancing our enrollment management strategies and those efforts are showing results,” Mr. Fullerton said. “Our mission is to make sure that students know that MSSU is committed to using all of its resources to help motivated students attain an outstanding education”.
