Southeast to defer fall admissions for on-campus students

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Southeast Missouri State University is deferring admissions to students applying for the fall 2011 semester who want to live on campus.

A large anticipated beginning freshman class prompted the deferral.  The university will begin the deferral on Monday, July 11.

Southeast's residence hall system is at its capacity with 2,981 housing contracts in place for the fall.  That is 120 more housing contracts than this time last year, according to the university.

There are only three private rooms on campus this fall compared with 70 in fall 2010.

The deadline for students who are living on campus to complete the admission process and submit their $150 housing deposit and contract is Friday, July 8.

Southeast will continue to accept admissions applications for the fall 2011 semester for students within commuting distance of Southeast who are not requesting on-campus housing.

Beginning freshmen or new transfer students with fewer than 57 completed credit hours, who are under 21, unmarried, not supporting dependent children, not a veteran and not living with a parent are required to live on campus at Southeast.

The fall 2011 semester begins Aug. 22.
