Official fourth-week enrollment figures at the University of Missouri-Rolla list a total enrollment of 5,552 students, a 6.3 percent increase in students over last spring’s fourth-week enrollment, says Laura Stoll, UMR registrar.
The spring semester at UMR began Monday, Jan. 8.
In 2006, 5,224 students were enrolled at the end of the fourth week of the spring semester. UMR’s undergraduate enrollment now stands at 4,231 students, while the number of graduate students attending UMR is 1,321. Enrollment growth occurred in all four schools, both on campus and distance.
“We are very pleased with the continued growth in student enrollment,” says Jay Goff, dean of enrollment at UMR. “UMR’s spring enrollment increase stems from the university’s recruitment and retention efforts.”
UMR’s enrollment has been growing quickly over the past few years. This semester’s enrollment is 26.6 percent larger than it was in the 2001 spring semester.
