Official fourth-week enrollment figures at the University of Missouri-Rolla list a total enrollment of 5,224 students, an increase of 218 students over last spring’s fourth-week enrollment, says Laura Stoll, UMR registrar.
The spring semester at UMR began Monday, Jan. 9.
In 2005, 5,006 students were enrolled at the end of the fourth week of the spring semester. Record increases in student retention and a larger new transfer student class are credited for much of the enrollment growth.
“It is exciting to have so many students returning to the university,” says Jay Goff, dean of enrollment management at UMR. “The faculty and staff have done an outstanding job at helping more and more students succeed at UMR.”
This is the first time UMR has registered more than 5,200 students in the spring semester in more than a decade.
