Minot State reports growth in Spring 2024 semester

MINOT, N.D. – Minot State University is pleased to announce its official, fourth–week Spring 2024 enrollment of 2,566 students, an increase of approximately 1% over last spring. 

“We are pleased to see the overall enrollment growth at Minot State this spring,” said Minot State President Dr. Steven Shirley. “We have initiated a number of new scholarship programs, such as the Hometown Pride and Prairie Rose Scholarships and overhauled our four-year award with the new Academic Excellence Scholarship. We believe these new initiatives have helped to maintain affordability for students, and, along with our traditional strong array of academic programs, have helped ensure our enrollment increase this spring.” 

While spring isn’t typically a substantial semester for incoming freshmen, MSU enrolled its largest spring freshman class since 2018. Minot State also registered its second-largest dual credit class (219) in eight years, up 24 students from last spring, for a 12.3% increase.
