With 9,134 students, the fall 2013 enrollment for Jackson State is the highest in the University’s history. According to JSU President Carolyn W. Meyers, the enrollment growth shows that the university continues to be the institution of choice for students in pursuit of a quality education and the proper skills to compete at a global level.
“Our faculty and staff are committed to providing the best possible higher education experience for students. The successful matriculation of students is our ultimate goal. That’s the reason we’ve invested in academics, innovative programs and technology,” Meyers said.
The fall 2013 enrollment is a 3.6 percent increase over the fall 2012 number of 8,819. The fall 2013 enrollment represents the highest percentage increase of all Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning. The historic enrollment surpasses JSU’s spring 2013 enrollment of 8,760 students, which also was a record for a spring tally.
“We are pleased to know we’re attracting some of the best students in Mississippi and from around the country,” Meyers said.
