Increased Graduate Enrollment, Retention Highlight SIUE Spring Semester


Southern Illinois University Edwardsville has increased graduate student enrollment for the spring 2019 semester.

Graduate enrollment grew ten percent to 177 students more than spring 2018 to reach its highest level in four years.
Along with graduate enrollment, retention contributed to that increase. SIUE recorded its best fall to spring retention rate for new freshmen at 92.3 percent.

SIUE also saw record online enrollment for any spring semester with 12 percent of total students enrolled completely online.

SIUE's overall enrollment declined 359 students compared to spring 2018. School officials say the overall enrollment decline is due to the cumulative effect of enrolling 15 percent fewer new Illinois freshmen and 15 percent fewer Illinois transfers since achieving record overall enrollment in fall 2015.
