The official Bismarck State College enrollment report shows a record enrollment of 4,392 students with 2,631 full-time and 1,761 part-time students.
This is the sixth consecutive year of a record-breaking increase. Total enrollment marks a 5 percent increase over the 4,177 students enrolled in 2010.
Dr. Drake Carter, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said, "The enrollment report indicates an increase in part-time and dual enrollment students. We have worked closely with our local school districts to better serve the high school students wanting college credit. Other reasons for our increasing enrollment continue to be the strength of BSC's academic programs and growth of the Bismarck-Mandan area and western North Dakota."
BSC's enrollment has been steadily increasing and represents more than a decade of advancing student numbers.
