GRAND FORKS - Enrollment at the University of North Dakota has decreased this semester for the second consecutive autumn in a row, according to university reports.
The university said the 6 percent decrease in student enrollment last year is because of a conscious effort to admit students with higher GPAs and ACT scores along with large graduating classes.
“This is going to have a cumulative kind of effect,” UND spokesman Peter Johnson said. “I think you’ll see us start to judiciously grow.”
Admission standards have been tightened incrementally beginning in 2012 and the school saw some of the largest graduating classes ever last spring and summer.
While the school saw a 19 percent drop in enrolled freshmen last year, only two fewer freshmen enrolled this year than in 2013.
