The 10th day enrollment report indicates 7,732 students are enrolled, a 1.8 percent increase from fall semester 2018. The number of first-time graduate students rose by 71. That’s a 63.4 percent increase over last year.

The number of new, first-time freshmen decreased by seven. Maintaining the new freshmen rate gives NMU an 18.2 percent increase over a three-year period, which bucks state and national trends.

Officials say NMU’s Global Campus online program enrollment has grown by 108 students, a 26-percent jump.

NMU President Fritz Erickson says through traditional enrollment and the university’s broadband Educational Access Network, the school expects to serve more than 15,400 people this year.
