CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Southeast Missouri State University announced Tuesday they have set another enrollment record for the 11th straight year with undergraduate and graduate headcounts at 11,510 for the fall 2011 semester.
The university says Tuesday's official fourth-week census report shows total enrollment is up 3.6 percent from last year. Total beginning freshmen headcount again surpassed the 1,900 mark with 1,904 new freshmen enrolled this fall. Classes at Southeast began August 22.
Key to growth this fall is the second consecutive year in which beginning freshmen enrollment has eclipsed 1,900, according to Dr. Dennis Holt, vice president for enrollment management and student success.
Despite passing the 1,900 mark, beginning freshmen enrollment is down 1.2 percent from this time last year when 1,928 new freshmen were enrolled.
