MSU sees enrollment increase in winter session

ASHLAND, Ky. — Morehead State University’s 2017-18 winter session showed an increase of 207 students from the previous year, according to university officials.

The just-completed session had an enrollment total of 751 students with 96 courses for 2,820 credit hours, an increase from 544 students with 70 courses for 2,000 hours in 2016-17.

In its three years, Morehead State University’s Winter Session has been very successful, according to provost and vice president for academic services Steven M. Ralston.

“It is a wonderful opportunity for students to stay on track for graduation,” Ralston said. “The winter term has grown every year. It has been very beneficial for the students, faculty and MSU.”

The session was held Dec. 11, 2017 through Jan. 8 for undergraduates and graduate students.

“We doubled enrollment from the first to the second year,” added Ralston. “This year it was up 38 percent. It still has potential of growing more.”
