Northwestern reports spring semester enrollment increase

February 15, 2011

Enrollment for the spring semester at Northwestern Oklahoma State University increased 3.3 percent from a year ago, according to figures in a preliminary enrollment report presented to the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

Total enrollment for the current spring semester is 2,138 students, an increase of 69 from 2010. The increase in students also led to a 4 percent increase in credit hour enrollment.

“We’re pleased that enrollment continues to grow and that Northwestern is serving more students and more communities with quality programs that are affordable and accessible,” said Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president.

The main campus in Alva reported an increase of nearly 3 percent with 1,372 students enrolled in spring classes, an increase of 37 from a year ago.

Enrollment at Northwestern-Woodward rose 1.2 percent with 248 students attending classes at that campus.
Northwestern-Enid reported a smaller enrollment with 318 students. Enrollment at Northwestern’s outreach sites, including the University Center of Ponca City totaled 158 students, an increase of 13.7 percent from 2010. The number of high school students enrolled in concurrent classes is 98, a surge of 42 percent from a year ago.

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.
