The University of North Dakota is reporting an all-time record spring enrollment of 13,950 students on Wednesday, according to final tally results from Suzanne Anderson, UND registrar.

The final count represents a 3.7 percent increase over last year’s spring enrollment of 13,458 students, which also was a record.

Among the different colleges at UND, the School of Engineering and Mines (SEM) saw the largest gains in students, continuing an upward trend over the past five spring semesters. SEM’s spring enrollment has grown by 45 percent, or more than 500 students, since 2007. The Graduate School at UND also continued to post strong numbers with 2,679 students enrolled, a 5.2-percent increase over last spring’s count of 2,547.

UND continues to draw the vast majority of its students from North Dakota and Minnesota. Students from those two states total more than 10,400, or 75 percent of UND’s spring enrollees.

The new spring tally follows a fall 2011 enrollment of 14,697, also an all-time enrollment record for the school, and comes on the heels of the largest winter commencement class ever to graduate from UND. Each year, the final fall enrollment is considered to be the official enrollment for North Dakota University System institutions.
