Enrollment on the first day of classes at Missouri S&T is 7,022, according to Missouri S&T Registrar Deanne Jackson. This is an increase over last year’s first-day total of 6,971. S&T will continue to register students during the first weeks of the fall semester. Official enrollment figures for the fall 2023 semester will be available after the fourth full week of classes.
The fall 2023 enrollment total includes students from all 50 states and 71 foreign countries. It also includes 655 extended-learning students, 6,367 on-campus students, 279 transfer students and 528 new graduate students.
S&T’s first-day enrollment includes 1,199 first-year students with an average GPA of 3.9 and an average ACT score of 27.4. Fifteen first-year students are recipients of Missouri S&T’s new Solving for Tomorrow Scholarship, a need-based scholarship that covers all tuition and fees not covered by other scholarships and grants. It is renewable for four years for students who maintain a 2.75 cumulative GPA and complete their FAFSA by Feb. 1 each year.
Included in this year’s total are 804 students in S&T’s new Kummer College of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Economic Development, which was made possible by the transformative $300 million gift from June and Fred Kummer, a 1955 S&T graduate. The Kummers envisioned a collaborative spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation that would empower future leaders to rise to new challenges.
The Kummer gift also provided scholarship assistance and programming to students at S&T: 345 undergraduate students are new Kummer Vanguard Scholars, which brings the total number of students in that program to 1,075. In addition, 10 Ph.D. students are new Kummer Innovation and Entrepreneurship Doctoral Fellows.
