Southeast Missouri State University to defer admissions

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Southeast Missouri State University will defer admission for applicants living outside a 50-mile radius of Cape Girardeau and applying for fall 2011. The admissions deferrals will begin on July 11.

The deferral was announced in light of a larger than anticipated beginning freshman class. On-campus housing is already near capacity.

Assistant vice president for enrollment management/director of admissions Dr. Debbie Below said that while it was not a decision made lightly, it was a decision that had to be made.

“They have beds, and that was the importance of this, making sure that we are meeting the housing requirements and needs and have a good comfortable living environment for those who already have contracts in place,” Dr. Below said.

Students who are not required to live on-campus may continue to apply for the fall semester.
