Enrollment on the first day of classes at Missouri S&T is projected to be 5,676, a 2.6 percent increase from last year’s first day of enrollment, says Laura Stoll, Missouri S&T registrar. This will be the seventh consecutive year of enrollment increases.
The spring semester begins Monday, Jan. 12. Last spring, 5,531 students were enrolled on the first day of the spring semester. This year’s 2.6 percent increase represents a total of 145 additional students. S&T’s total enrollment has grown by over 34 percent, more than 1600 students, since 2000.
The university will continue to enroll students through the first weeks of the spring semester. More than 100 students are expected to enroll during the first weeks of the semester. Financial assistance is still available.
“We continue to attract some of the brightest students from throughout the state and the nation,” says Jay Goff, vice provost and dean of enrollment management at Missouri S&T. “It is exciting to see so many students choosing Missouri S&T as their first-choice university.”
The official enrollment figures for the semester will be released after the fourth week of classes.
