Jan. 18, 2007 – The number of degree-seeking students at Southeast Missouri State University is holding steady, according to a preliminary report compiled after the first full day of classes of the spring 2007 semester.

Classes at Southeast began Jan. 16.

Total undergraduate enrollment stands at 7,965, virtually the same as last year’s 7,966 figure and the number of degree-seeking master’s and specialist students is 671 – the same as in 2006.

Due to a drop of 31 in the number of unclassified non-degree-seeking graduate students, total graduate student headcount is 883, down 3.6 percent from this time last year. The combined undergraduate and graduate student headcount is 8,848, down 34 from spring 2006.

The official census report will be issued in four weeks. University officials say the enrollment typically grows between the first-day census and the final fourth-week census date.
