CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - Enrollment continues to rise at Southeast Missouri State, and university officials say a big part of the reason is that more high school students in the region are getting an early start in college through a dual enrollment program.

The Southeast Missourian (https://bit.ly/1Berphd ) reports that enrollment for the spring semester rose 1.9 percent from last spring. The combined undergraduate and graduate student population is 10,858, up 202 students from the spring of 2014.

Southeast has 9,661 undergrads and 1,197 graduate students.

The university says a dual-credit program that began in the fall of 2013 involves 42 schools in southeast Missouri. As a result, according to the university, more high school students are taking the opportunity to get an early start on college classes.
