Spring semester enrollment at the North Dakota State College of Science is 2,951 according to the official census, which is taken on the 20th instructional day of classes each semester. This is the highest spring semester enrollment on record since 1983 and a 7 percent increase over spring 2015.

During the past five years, NDSCS spring enrollment has steadily grown. The number of credits students are enrolled in is also up from 2015 to 30,673 which is the highest since spring 2012. Thanks to persistent recruiting, focused student success initiatives and marketing efforts, the College continues to see remarkable growth at both the Wahpeton campus and NDSCS-Fargo location as well.

“The demand for our graduates remains very high which is supported by our 99 percent placement rating,” said NDSCS President John Richman. “Our faculty and staff work diligently to help our students succeed through focused retention and student success efforts while our industry partners contribute to a win-win educational experience.”

There are 1,508 full time students and 1,443 part time students, with just more than 45 percent of students residing on-campus at NDSCS in Wahpeton.

Additionally, 71.7 percent of NDSCS students are from North Dakota from 49 counties, while 21.4 percent of students are from Minnesota, 2.5 percent are from South Dakota and 1.1 percent are from Montana.

Old Main in winter

North Dakota State College of Science students Taylor Heinz and Jessica Mastel, both from Wahpeton, N.D., were recently selected to serve as the College’s representatives on the North Dakota Community College Academic All-State Team.

“Taylor and Jessica are outstanding examples of academic achievement and community involvement,” said NDSCS President Dr. John Richman. “Being named to the North Dakota Community College Academic All-State Team is a significant accomplishment, and we’re very proud of them.”

Nominees are selected through the Phi Theta Kappa All-USA and Coca-Cola Community College Scholarship application process. Nominations are also based on academic success, community and campus involvement and leadership, and an application essay. 

Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society, and the academic team recognition program is active in 37 states. All-State nominees will also be considered for nomination to the All-USA Academic Team.
