  • DSU records stable fall enrollment

  • Dakota State University released the Fall 2014 enrollment numbers today (Tuesday, September 23) and recorded stable enrollment. The total number of full-time equivalent (FTE) students was consistent from Fall 2013 (1740.6) to Fall 2014 (1739.6). While total headcount dropped slightly from last year, this directly correlates to a decline in undergraduate students taking courses at off-campus sites.  On-campus enrollment continues to be strong in a number of majors including cyber operations, elementary education/special education and digital arts and design. DSU experienced significant growth in the number of graduate students increasing from 243 (Fall 2013) to 311 (Fall 2014), a gain of 58 students.  The largest increase was in the Master of Science in information systems.
