Detroit Mercy Enrollment up above 5000

Postby uofdmik2008 » Thu Sep 07, 2017 8:31 am

Detroit Mercy announced positive preliminary fall enrollment numbers Wednesday, September 6.

Detroit Mercy’s preliminary full-time undergraduate enrollment is eight percent higher than last year on this date and total enrollment is 5,037 students, compared with 4,828 at this time last year.

Additionally, first-time freshmen enrollment is 554, four percent higher than fall 2016. This is the third consecutive year that Detroit Mercy’s first-year undergraduate enrollment has increased. The University also has a 24 percent increase in freshmen enrollment from Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit. The major reason for this increase is the University of Detroit Mercy Catholic Education Grant, which was established three years ago. Also, the number of full-time transfer students is 56 percent higher than last year at this time.

Preliminary second-year retention data for fall 2016 freshmen is 86.8 percent, an increase of almost four percent from 2016 and the highest second-year retention rate since 1993.

“University of Detroit Mercy’s numerous strategies to recruit academically talented students in the metropolitan area, Michigan and other states are proving to be successful,” said Detroit Mercy President Antoine M. Garibaldi. “And it is evident that our service-oriented students are choosing Detroit Mercy because of the University’s neighborhood and community engagement initiatives, such as The Live6 Alliance, and because they want to be a part of the city’s revitalization."

Final enrollment census data for fall 2017 will be available in early October.

Great news! Time to join the Big East.

Very promising enrollment and retention trends. And I understand that the academic quality of incoming student is also moving in a positive direction, average ACT up from 24 to 25.

Missed seeing you at yesterday's luncheon Mik, but thanks for hosting the event.
