Time Remains for Students To Enroll


Memorial Day always marks the unofficial start of summer as well as a prime time for high school graduations and the parties that follow. If you’re undecided on what to buy your favorite high school graduate, give them something that someday will be priceless: an encouraging word about Maryville University.

Maryville still has open slots in its Fall 2007 freshman and transfer classes in most programs, said Shani Lenore, director of the University’s Office of Admissions. Lenore added that because Maryville has a rolling admissions process, students still can apply online at https://www.maryville.edu/admissions/adm_apply.asp and receive a quick decision on their application. Students who apply by June 20 will receive priority registration for classes, she commented

“Usually at this point in the college decision-making process, there are a couple of factors that can influence a student’s decision on where to attend: affordability and distance from home,” Lenore said. “Well, the great news for students leaning toward staying close to home is that Maryville has spaces remaining for the upcoming academic year.” Housing also still is available, she added.

Maryville University, founded in 1872, is a private, coeducational institution offering approximately 50 undergraduate, seven master’s and two doctoral degree programs to 3,300 students. Ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of America’s Best Colleges in the Midwest, Maryville University prepares its students for successful and meaningful careers by offering programs that integrate liberal arts with professional studies.

Among Maryville’s most recent graduates, 94 percent are employed or attending graduate school. Approximately 15,000 alumni work and live in the St. Louis region.
