Enrollment in MU online courses is up, with a 12 percent increase in the 2011-2012 enrollment from the year prior. Mizzou Online offered 696 courses last year, catering to 3,014 graduate and 6,141 undergraduate students. In the 2010-2011 academic year, MU offered 624 courses, 72 fewer than this year. The university is able to offer the wide array of classes due to the increased course offerings that are provided through this program. “Professors can convert classes into an online format and make it available to students online,” Interim Vice Provost for E-Learning Jim Spain said. “Programs that apply for funding can receive funding for up to $250,000 for a proposal (to add an online class).”
