Enrollment Numbers Drop at DSU

Posted: Updated:

For the third year in a row, Dickinson State University fall enrollment numbers have dropped. The official number of this year's incoming students was 1,449. That's down about 1,000 students from 2010.

The university is trying to earn some credibility back after last year's scandal over giving out unearned degrees. But the school's admission director says she thinks the enrollment drop is from the university's new, tougher admissions standards.

Beginning this fall, we implemented admissions standards requiring that students submit evidence of completion not just the core requirements for high school, but also a minimum GPA and minimum ACT score," says Marie Moe, DSU executive director of enrollment services. 

Before this academic year, DSU accepted any student who had completed high school and turned in all the paperwork.
