Enrollment in MSU-IIT for the first semester of the school year 2013-2014 increased by 4.7% according to figures released by the Office of the Registrar.

Only the College of Engineering (COE), College of Science & Mathematics (CSM), and the School of Computer Studies (SCS) posted an increase of 1% in enrollees.

Enrollment in the School of Engineering Technology (SET), College of Business Administration & Accountancy (CBAA), and the College of Nursing (CON) dropped by 1%.

The College of Education (CED) remained to have the highest number of enrollees at 2,344 or 18% of the total number of students enrolled in MSU-IIT this semester.

The College of Arts & Social Sciences (CASS) remained second with 2,067 students (16%), while the COE stayed at 3rd with 2,010 students (15%).

This is the first time that the enrollment figures broke the 13,000 mark. (CGO/OC-OPI)
