Enrollment at Mayville State University for the Summer Session of 2017 was at an 86-year high, marking the university’s largest summer school headcount enrollment since 1931. Headcount enrollment was up 2% overall, when compared with last year. The number reflects an increase in the number of students in all categories. The full-time equivalent figure grew by 4% over last year.
Mayville State experienced enrollment growth in the new online Master of Arts in Teaching degree program this summer. Additional students have applied and are expected to enroll for the fall semester. The new online program is designed to help those who have bachelor’s degrees in non-teaching fields get the credentials they need to become teachers. This degree directly impacts the teacher shortage crisis in North Dakota.
“Mayville State University strives to be flexible and offer convenient options for students in pursuit of their educational goals,” said Mayville State University president Dr. Gary Hagen. “The combination of providing flexible options for those studying online and at a distance and the physical plant and other improvements for those who study on campus are making Mayville State a great option for those looking for a top-notch education at a great value. We are delighted by the opportunity to serve the citizens of North Dakota and beyond in this way.”
Mayville State’s summer session options included 10-week, eight-week, and five-week sessions, as well as a variable dynamic option, providing students with more than 125 summer course offerings. Courses were offered on-line, as well as on the Mayville State campus.
