Northwestern reports increase in spring semester enrollment

February 1, 2013

Enrollment for the spring semester at Northwestern Oklahoma State University is larger than a year ago, according to figures in an enrollment report submitted to the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

Total enrollment for the current spring semester is 2,138 students, an increase of 95 students or 4.7 percent from 2012.

“Anytime you experience enrollment growth it is great news,” said Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president. “However, the ability to experience growth in this rapidly growing regional economy is very good news and a testament to our strategy of combining a quality academic experience with extraordinary value.”

The increase was driven by a larger student population at the main campus in Alva. Enrollment there jumped by 4.5 percent or 60 students to 1,381.

Enrollment at Northwestern-Enid remained nearly the same, increasing by a single student to 303.

Northwestern-Woodward reported stable enrollment numbers, dropping only four students to 248.

Enrollment at Northwestern’s outreach sites, including the University Center of Ponca City, increased by 28 students to 173. A total of 33 high school students are enrolled in concurrent courses.

The sum of Northwestern’s campus and outreach enrollments is slightly larger than the total headcount figure because some students take classes at multiple sites.
