Of those enrolled, 381 are undergraduate students and 859 are graduate.
Distance education students, both in Africa and the MA professionals programs, continue to comprise a large segment of the student body, numbering 566, while the number of Fairfield-based students is 655.
Again there are more students originating from countries around the world, 791, than students from the US, who number 430. Some 80 different countries are represented.
Enrollment will increase even further in October, when as many as 70 new students arrive to study in the MS in computer science.
This fall represents the 40th anniversary of MIU/MUM first offering classes in Santa Barbara in 1973, when approximately 130 students enrolled.
