Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical announces another record increase in enrollment,  reporting a 3% increase for the fall 2010 semester. Student headcount as reported on the tenth day is at 2,509 compared to 2,447 at this time last fall. The college reports  FYE (Full Year Equivalent) student count  is also up by 4% campus-wide.

According to Nate Emerson, Vice President of Student Affairs, “We are pleased to be able to offer additional courses for areas that are in demand, both in our program mix and by sustaining unprecedented growth in both our Liberal Arts and Sciences and Online programming. Our strong faculty commitment to students and their ability to react to industry needs has been a winning formula here at Southeast Technical.” Emerson adds, “The college is pleased to maintain a 93% placement rate; bottom line is our graduates are well-prepared to find employment upon graduation.” 

The college has positioned itself well to serve the needs of transfer students with recent changes that have allowed for the addition of more and more liberal Arts and Science courses that are transferable to other colleges and universities throughout the region. The college has ramped up hiring to meet the increase by bringing in over 40 new instructors to meet this growth.  The college has approximately 3,500 students over an academic year attending three campuses in Winona and Red Wing, translating into 2,000 full-time equivalencies (FYE's).
