NDSU's official fourth week enrollment for fall 2012 is 14,443 undergraduate, graduate and professional students. This is a slight increase from the official fall 2011 enrollment of 14,399.
“This is exactly the modest increase for full-time enrollment we had targeted,” said NDSU President Dean L. Bresciani.
Freshman enrollment is 2,441, up from 2,420 in 2011. Transfer student enrollment is 735, up from 693 last year. Undergraduate enrollment is 11,988, up from 11,911 a year ago.

“NDSU is committed to recruiting and retaining a very high caliber of students,” said Prakash Mathew, vice president for student affairs. “We are pleased with the increase in our new student and transfer student enrollment.”
Approximately 95 percent of NDSU students are in face-to-face, traditional classroom-based courses.
