MSU early spring enrollment numbers stable

Minot State University first-day enrollment figures prove to be holding steady. Although enrollment becomes official after the fourth full week of classes, MSU shows initial growth in key areas and a slight decrease in other areas.

The number of out of state and non-Canadian international students has increased from this time last year, which can be attributed in large part to the Grow North Dakota campaign. Grow North Dakota, an MSU endeavor to recruit students, charges a flat tuition rate.

“The increase in the number of out-of-state and non-Canadian international numbers shows we are becoming much more noticeable from outside this region and this is very encouraging,” said David Fuller, MSU President. “We have a very reputable academic program that’s starting to show we are getting noticed.”

Other enrollment gains include the number of transfer students, especially in state transfers, graduate students and full-time undergraduate students and MSU students at Bismarck and Fargo sites. The number of Ward county residents is down slightly. However, MSU continues to draw students from all corners of North Dakota, as the number of students from numerous counties around the state is higher.

MSU enrollment numbers may change, as official enrollment numbers are not reported to the North Dakota University System until after the fourth full week of classes.
