The numbers are in, and one college in Western North Dakota has seen a slight increase.
The semester has started at Williston State College, and with a few extra students. Between online enrollment, students on campus and high school students who take classes at the community college, the university president says the numbers are up a little with close to 1,100 students. With it being so early in the semester, he says the numbers could change.
“As of this morning, we’re up about seven students and our credits from our census from last year to this day, are literally, there’s a difference of like 15 credits. So we’re trending almost exactly the same in terms of head count and in terms of total credit production,” said Dr. John Miller, President of Williston State College.
Dr. Miller said over the past five years enrollment at the university has had a steady, slow increase.
