MSU sets enrollment record for spring semester

BOZEMAN – Montana State University has set yet another enrollment record.

MSU has 15,694 students enrolled for this spring semester, of which 60% are Montana residents.

MSU News Service Director Mike Becker says that while the MSU enrollment numbers are promising, the timely success of students is the university’s top priority.

“They’re aiming to keep students on track to graduate in four years, such as our Freshman 15 program, which encourages students to take higher credit loads first semester so that they can get to that graduation in four years,” Becker said. “We loving seeing them come to MSU and choose our school but love to see them out the door in four years.”

MSU also says that this success wouldn’t be possible without all of their faculty and staff.
