BISMARCK, N.D. - Student headcount enrollment in the North Dakota University System increased by 128 students, year-over-year, from spring 2011 to spring 2012. Total number of students in spring 2012 is 45,280 compared to 45,152 a year ago.

Full-time student equivalencies declined, however, 1 percent (181 FTEs) from 36,020 to 35,839.

A five-year trend indicates a system-wide enrollment increase. As an example, the system included 5,651 more students in spring 2012 than it did in spring 2007 for a 14-percent increase. The same trend holds true for FTE's when 32,784 students were served in 2007 and 35,839 in 2012.

Year-over-year numbers from 2011 to 2012 are indicative of a higher overall college participation, driven by an increase in part-time students.

Over a 10-year history, the spring 2012 headcount (45,280) is significantly higher than the 10-year average of 41,128 and spring 10-year average of 33,881. This spring's enrollment, as an example, is 1,958 FTEs above the 10-year average.

Spring 2012 enrollment numbers for at four-year institutions are: Dickinson State, 2,008; Mayville State, 929; Minot State, 3,369; North Dakota State, 13,413; North Dakota, 13,950; and Valley City State, 1,306, for a system-wide total of 34,975.

Two-year institutions enrollments are as follows: Bismarck State, 3,887; Dakota College, 783; Lake Region, 2,021; NDSCS, 2,811; and Williston, 803. The total two-year college enrollment number is 10,305.
