Enrollment increases at South Dakota's public universities

Posted: Updated:

Enrollment in South Dakota's six public universities has increased by more than 300 students, but full-time student numbers are down.

After a slight dip last year, enrollment is up 327 at South Dakota's six public universities. While enrollment is up early one percent, full-time equivalent enrollment is down less than one percent from last year.

The total headcount of the six public universities is 36, 430. There are 26,468 full-time equivalent students for the Fall 2012 term.

"The modest decrease in FTE (Full-Time Equivalent) can be attributed to adult learners enrolling in the university system to finish or start degrees while still working full time," Board of Regents Executive Director and CEO Jack Warner said. "These students do not carry a large credit load."
