Southeastern unveils enrollment increase
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.
