Record number of degrees at UMSL this fiscal year
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The University of Missouri-St. Louis has set a record for the number of degrees awarded.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 3,199 students received degrees during the 2016 fiscal year in graduation ceremonies in May, August and December. UMSL Chancellor Thomas George also calls it a proud moment that 632 underrepresented minority students graduated.
Graduating 3,000 students a year has long been a goal of UMSL leaders. They first hit that number during the 2013-14 school year.
