Annual Institutional Profile of Montclair State University, 2014


Now in its second century, Montclair State University has earned a national reputation for excellence

and innovation. The University offers a broad array of undergraduate and graduate programs in the

liberal arts and sciences, as well as in professional fields in business, the arts, and education. Recent recognition of the University’s quality has come from Forbes Magazine, which again recognized Montclair State University as one of the top public post-secondary institutions in New Jersey.

Montclair State is currently in a period of significant growth and development with enrollments of over 20,000 students, new programs, new faculty, and expanding physical facilities. As the University enters its second century, it takes pride in its rich history of bold educational innovation, inspired teaching, and vital service to the state.

Institutional Mission Montclair State University is committed to serving the educational needs of New Jersey with programs characterized by academic rigor and currency in the development of knowledge and its applications. The University will offer a comprehensive range of baccalaureate, master’s and certificate programs and a focused portfolio of doctoral programs that are closely aligned with the University’s academic strengths and the needs of the state.

The University will recruit faculty with exceptional academic or professional credentials and a deep commitment to the pursuit of their development as teachers and scholars. The University will admit to study with this faculty, students who have demonstrated the potential for high achievement, diligence in the pursuit of their education, and high aspirations for using their education. The University will be inexorably committed to the maintenance of a learning community that is deeply and broadly reflective of the diverse population of New Jersey.

All University programs will develop in students the ability to discover, create, evaluate, apply, and share knowledge in a climate characterized by tolerance and openness in the exploration of ideas.

Curricular and co-curricular programs will cultivate the ability to think critically, to act ethically, and to become informed citizen-participants prepared to assume leadership roles in a democracy.

Recognizing the increasing connectedness of the world, the University will ensure that all students develop an understanding of global issues and of their responsibilities as citizens of the world.

The University will serve as a center for the creation of new knowledge and for the development of innovative applications of existing knowledge and as a center for pedagogical and artistic excellence and creativity. The University seeks to focus the professional activities of its faculty and the educational endeavors of its students on the enduring disciplines that will continue to constitute the knowledge base of an educated citizenry in the 21st century, as well as on the more specific and changing areas of study that have particular relevance to the region served by the University.

–  –  –

The University will play a role beyond the campus community, partnering and collaborating at the local, state, national and international levels to make positive contributions to addressing issues of importance to society, to enable students to experience their ability to use knowledge in constructive ways in the world, and to share the rich array of intellectual and cultural resources of the University with the people of New Jersey.

In fall 2013, 15,431 undergraduates enrolled at Montclair State University (see Table II.B.1). This headcount was up 30.6% from fall 2004, and up 6.9% from fall 2012.

–  –  –

The proportion of undergraduates studying full-time also rose over the 10-year period. The percent of undergraduates enrolled full-time increased nearly 6 percentage points, from 80.7% in fall 2004 to 86.6% in fall 2013.

–  –  –

Montclair State University enrolled 4,033 graduate students in fall 2013 (see Table II.B.2). This graduate student headcount was up 2.1% from fall 2012, and 5.6% from fall 2004.

–  –  –

The proportion of graduate students studying full-time was higher than 10 years earlier. The percent of graduate students enrolled full-time rose nearly 12 percentage points, from 21.8% in fall 2004 to 33.4% in fall 2013.

–  –  –

While most students are admitted and enroll at the beginning of each academic year, thousands of additional students enroll during the University’s other sessions that run in the winter, spring, and summer. During FY13, nearly 22,000 students attended MSU during one or more of its academic sessions (see Table II.B.4).

–  –  –

A total of 13,012 individuals applied for admission as first-time freshmen to Montclair State University in fall 2013, up 48% from fall 2004. The University admitted 65.3% of these applicants, and 3,040 of those who were admitted to the University enrolled as freshmen for a yield of 35.8%.

The fall 2013 admissions yield was approximately 4.7 percentage points lower than in fall 2004.

Fall 2013 freshmen entered MSU as either regular admits, special admits, or students admitted through the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program. By admitting students using different admissions categories, the University fulfilled the hopes and aspirations of more of its applicants. Of MSU’s 3,040 first-time freshmen, 92.7% were Regular Admits, 4.1% were admitted through the EOF program, and 3.2% were Special Admits (see Table II.C.1).

Table II.C.1 contains information on the average SAT scores of MSU’s fall 2013 enrolled full-time (N=3,023) and part-time (N=10) first-time freshmen. It should be noted that the full-time, first-time freshman population (3,023) differs slightly from the cohort of full-time, first-time undergraduates (3,030) that we will track for Federal reporting purposes using the IPEDS Graduation Rate Survey (GRS). The IPEDS cohort also includes full-time, first-time students who are admitted above the freshman level because of advanced placement credits.

–  –  –

In fall 2013, Montclair State University used the College Board’s suite of Accuplacer tests to assess college readiness in elementary algebra. Incoming freshmen whose SAT-Math scores were below 550, or who failed to attain at least a B- score in Algebra II in high school, were required to take the Accuplacer elementary algebra portion of Accuplacer.

–  –  –

Between 2007 and 2013, the number of undergraduates enrolled in one or more remedial courses declined 69%, while the number of full-time, first-time students in remediation declined 65%.

–  –  –

A CIRP survey administered to fall 2013 first-time freshmen revealed that 88% considered MSU their first or second choice among colleges. The survey also revealed that the top three reasons freshmen chose MSU were: a) its good academic reputation (57%), b) its affordability (53%), and c) its good reputation for social activities (47%).
