The fall 2018 enrollment at Missouri University of Science and Technology, officially recorded at the end of the semester’s fourth week, is 8,607. This is a 3.1 percent decrease over last year’s fall enrollment of 8,884, says Deanne Jackson, Missouri S&T registrar.
“While overall enrollment is down a bit, enrollment is still at one of the highest levels in S&T history,” says Tim Albers, vice provost and dean of enrollment management at Missouri S&T. “The largest freshman class in the history of Missouri S&T, from fall 2014, graduated last May, so we expected a small drop in enrollment this fall as we work to maintain enrollment more than grow enrollment.”
This fall’s enrollment total includes 7,744 students enrolled on campus in Rolla. There are also 863 students enrolled in classes through distance education. Enrollment of students in Ph.D. programs at Missouri S&T is 665. The freshman class enrollment is 1,334 students. Students in Missouri S&T’s freshman class come from 24 states and 14 foreign countries.
Fall classes at Missouri S&T began on Aug. 20. The fourth week of the semester officially ended on Monday, Sept. 17.
