Southeastern sets all-time record for spring enrollment

January 28, 2020

DURANT, Okla. – Enrollment records continue to be broken at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

This spring’s enrollment of 4,744 students is the largest enrollment ever recorded in a spring semester during the 111-year history of the University.

This comes on the heels of the record-setting enrollment of 4,824 students last fall. That was the highest enrollment of students in a fall semester in school history.

Among the most significant areas of growth are in adult online learners, as well as online graduate programs in Education (School Counseling, Special Education, Educational Leadership, Curriculum and Instruction), and Sports Administration.

“We are encouraged by the fact our enrollment continues to trend upward,’’ said Southeastern interim president Bryon Clark. “There are several factors that come into play, including offering quality academic programs that are both affordable and convenient for a broad range of students. It is also important that we provide the specific programs that students need to acquire the knowledge necessary to ultimately achieve their career goals and aspirations.’’

This spring’s enrollment represents a 13.1 percent increase in head count over last spring, and an 8.7 percent increase in student credit hours over the same time.
