Mitchell Technical Institute announced recently that the enrollment for Spring Semester 2013 sets an all-time record for the two-year school. Current enrollment is 1115, surpassing the previous record of 1108 set in Fall 2010. The number is up 18 from the Fall 2012 enrollment of 1097.
The school has set several enrollment records during the last five years. That can be attributed to several factors including new programs, more online delivery, an expanded Center for Farm/Ranch Business Management, and, most visible, a new campus.
According to MTI president Greg Von Wald, "A technical education is an excellent investment. Combine relatively low tuition with in-demand programs, excellent wages, and a placement rate of 96% or higher, and you will see why students and parents are taking a good look at technical education when making decisions about their futures."
The next milestone for the school will be next fall when the new Trades Center facility is complete in August and all programs have been moved to the Spruce Street location.
