NDSU Sets New Enrollment Record
« on: September 12, 2007, 01:59:20 pm »
NDSU’s fall 2007 enrollment has set a record for the eighth year in a row, with 12,527 students in the university’s undergraduate and graduate programs. The official third week figure announced today is 269 more than one year ago.

In addition, NDSU graduate student enrollment reached an all-time high for the 10th consecutive year.

“Our continuing growth, particularly in our graduate programs, is truly significant and exciting,” said President Joseph A. Chapman. “NDSU is clearly an institution of choice for students.”

NDSU is seeing growth in all areas, including 2,166 new first-year students (an increase of 90 students), 737 undergraduate transfer students (4 more than last year) and 1,776 graduate students (114 above a year ago). In addition, NDSU’s international student population also reached an all-time high enrollment of 802 students.

“We are delighted with the enrollment figures, particularly after a record May graduating class,” said Prakash Mathew, vice president for student affairs. “The growth we are experiencing is a result of the wonderful education and experience our students are receiving at NDSU.”

David Wittrock, dean of the Graduate School, said, “Our graduate programs at NDSU are thriving. Last year, we granted a record number of Ph.D.s, and we also had a record number of students receive master’s degrees. This combination of record enrollments and success in having students complete their degrees is a clear signal that our strong academic programs are attractive to students who want to earn an advanced degree.”

NDSU's official count conforms with a new North Dakota University System methodology and per NDUS direction some numbers have been asterisked in the official report because of the new methodology.
