South­east­ern un­veils en­roll­ment in­crease

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - NEWS - FROM STAFF RE­PORTS

South­east­ern Ok­la­homa State Uni­ver­sity has an­nounced spring en­roll­ment jumped 9 per­cent over last spring to reach a seven-year high. That fol­lows a 6.2 per­cent in­crease in fall en­roll­ment.

“While we were very pleased with the num­bers last fall, we didn’t want it to be a one-shot deal,’’ Pres­i­dent Sean Bur­rage said in the an­nounce­ment. “We knew it was im­por­tant to not only sus­tain that suc­cess, but to build on it.”

The of­fi­cial spring 2018 en­roll­ment is 3,722 stu­dents, up 307 stu­dents over last spring. While un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dent en­roll­ment re­mained ba­si­cally flat, grad­u­ate stu­dent en­roll­ment in­creased 52.1 per­cent (319 stu­dents). Bur­rage cred­ited the in­crease with the ex­pan­sion of on­line pro­gram­ming.

The uni­ver­sity now of­fers on­line mas­ter’s de­gree pro­grams in busi­ness, ed­u­ca­tion, sports ad­min­is­tra­tion, aerospace ad­min­is­tra­tion and lo­gis­tics, and Na­tive Amer­i­can lead­er­ship, as well as se­lect un­der­grad­u­ate pro­grams.
