Delta State University’s Registrar, John Elliott reviews preliminary enrollment figures, as registration concluded on campus Thursday.
Delta State University’s registration period concluded today, with preliminary indications showing a three percent increase in undergraduate enrollment and a 1.5 percent increase in graduate enrollment from the spring 2005.
John Elliott, Registrar at Delta State, reported, “Everything ran smoothly with decentralized registration. With so many students registering over the web, it has cut down on lines at the Registrars’ Office and allowed us to deal with other issues. I feel we’re better able to serve students that need help or are having problems.”
A native of Clarksdale and DSU graduate, Elliott was promoted to the Registrar’s lead position in July 2005, after serving as the assistant to the Registrar for 17 years. Of the promotion, he offered, “I thank Delta State University for the wonderful opportunity to serve as Registrar. I look forward to the challenge and will ensure that the high standards of those before me will be honored.”
Under Elliott’s charge, the Office of the Registrar aims “to continue to provide excellent services regarding record management and academic support to the students and the campus community in a responsive and accurate manner.”
Final enrollment figures will not be confirmed until after Jan. 19.
