Last month 83 students arrived on campus to enroll in the Computer Professionals Program—the largest number of students ever admitted to this program.

As is typical, the students come from around the world, including 30 from Ethiopia and 18 from Nepal. Other countries represented include the Bahamas, Canada, Cambodia, Cameroon, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Iran, Kenya, Malaysia, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, Tanzania, United Kingdom, the United States, and Vietnam.

According to Greg Clarke-Johnsen, director of Computer Professionals Admissions, the department received between 4,500 and 5,000 applications since last August. Of those, 175 were accepted. And of that group, 89 received visas, six of whom weren't able to make it and will likely enroll in the fall.

The Computer Professionals Program offers an M.S. in computer science. Students complete 6 to 7.5 months of course work on campus and then are placed in paid practicum positions for two years while they complete their degrees via distance education.

Mr. Clarke-Johnsen attributes the overall greater success to an improved Internet application process and improved efficiency of the office. 'We have a great team, and they really worked as a unit,' he said.

Counting the Computer Professionals Students, a total of 140 new students enrolled for spring semester.
