MTI Records Record Enrollment

Mitchell Technical Institute has broken enrollment records once again this year.  The total number of students enrolled this fall is 1,227.  That’s up from 1,097 in fall of 2012 and 1,108 in spring of this year.  It’s a 12 percent increase over the past year.  The school also set a record with its largest incoming freshman class at 648 students.  That’s a nine percent increase over last year.  MTI president Greg Von Wald cites several factors for the increase, including a new centralized campus and 98 percent placement rate.
