HIGHLIGHTS

 

The semester enrollment report is based on information taken from the Universityís student information system at the time of the semesterís census date (the tenth day of classes).These figures reflect how many Montclair State University students are enrolled in courses at the end of this business day.This definition follows the New Jersey S.U.R.E. enrollment report requirements.Reports generated later in the semester will reflect students who have withdrawn from courses and will, therefore, be smaller than these official counts.
