USD Enrollment Grows in New Freshmen
USD has a headcount of 9,971 students this fall, compared to 10,061 in Fall 2014, a change of less than 1 percent. Despite having slightly fewer students, the number of credit hours being taught is up.
“We’re down in part-time students and up in full-time,” Abbott said. “We’d like all the part-time students we can get, but the reality is we have more full-time students this year, and we’re very happy about it.”
The new freshman class also contributed to a 16 percent growth in the USD honors program, he said.
USD, which has South Dakota’s largest Graduate School, saw a 17 percent increase in the number of students graduating with master’s and doctor’s degrees last school year, resulting in a slightly smaller graduate population this year. Growth was noted in the Beacom School of Business, School of Health Sciences, Law School and the USD Sanford School of Medicine.
