MWSU Official Enrollment Announced

The Clock Tower at Missouri Western State University

Missouri Western State University announced an official fall enrollment of 4,395 students on the university’s official census date.

This year’s enrollment is 1.74 percent higher than the enrollment in fall 2020 at the same point in the semester.

Missouri Western is seeing a significant increase in the number of high school students taking classes for credit through the Early College Academy. Also, the number of students taking classes in person is up significantly from a year ago. Enrollment in undergraduate classes that are 100 percent in-person is up approximately 19 percent over 2020.

Transfer students from 2- and 4-year institutions are up about 20 percent from a year ago among Missouri Western’s freshman class.

While the university has had modest gains compared to this time last year, final census enrollment is about 500 students below the final 2020 census, which took place six weeks into the semester last year.

Vice President for student affairs and enrollment management, Dr. Melissa Mace says the number of applications and admissions are up significantly early in the recruiting cycle compared to last year.
