JOHNSON CITY (Oct. 14) – Enrollment in East Tennessee State University’s School of Graduate Studies reached a record high this fall with 2,354 students, surpassing last fall’s previous all-time high.

Dean of the School of Graduate Studies Dr. Cecilia McIntosh says, “We strive to offer high-quality programs and to be innovative in courses of study and new degrees. We feel that our enrollment is a direct result of recognition of the excellent graduate programs offered by ETSU.”

Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Bert Bach adds, “We at ETSU are very pleased that the scope and quality of our graduate programs continue to attract a record number of very strong students.”

Demand continues to grow, with the number of applicants increasing by 10 percent during the past year. The admissions process is selective, with only about half of those who apply being accepted.
