NMU Enrollment Report Showing Decrease in Students
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Northern Michigan University’s 10th day enrollment report is showing the continuing undergraduate count is within 17 students of the 2011 figure.
NMU officials say that is highly surprising after a record-setting number of graduates last year.
The report, released late Friday, also found graduate student enrollment increased slightly and the number of enrolled veterans is up by 50, or more than 23 percent.
Total overall enrollment, however, decreased by 154 students—or 1.7 percent—mainly at the junior and freshman levels.
Fall enrollments in the most popular academic areas remain strong. The top four, by number of majors enrolled, are art and design, nursing, criminal justice and biology.
