Mayville State University experienced a large increase in enrollment for the Summer Session of 2016, marking the university’s largest summer school headcount enrollment since 1931. Headcount enrollment was up 21%, when compared with last year. The number of full-time and part-time students increased 14% and 22% respectively over 2015 counts. The full-time equivalent figure grew by 14% over last year.

“Growth in distance education continues to impact our overall enrollment,” said Mayville State University president Dr. Gary Hagen. “Mayville State strives to be flexible and offer convenient options for students in pursuit of their educational goals. The combination of providing flexible options for those studying at a distance and the fantastic physical plant and other improvements for those who study on campus are contributing to the overall success Mayville State has been experiencing. We are delighted by the opportunity to serve the citizens of North Dakota and beyond in this way.”

Mayville State’s summer session options have included 10-week, eight-week, and five-week sessions, as well as a variable dynamic option, providing students with more than 100 summer course offerings. Courses are being offered on-line, as well as on the Mayville State campus.
