UM Crookston sets enrollment record

CROOKSTON, Minn. – The University of Minnesota Crookston has a record number of enrolled students this fall.

A preliminary count released Tuesday puts the enrollment at 1,773 undergraduates, well above the previous record of 1,600 set last fall.

This fall’s numbers include about 700 online-only students. The university offers 10 of its 26 degree programs entirely online, as well as through traditional on-campus courses.

The university said residence halls are at maximum capacity, and more than 30 students were being housed at a nearby motel. A new residence hall is now being built and is scheduled to open next January in time for the spring semester.

The official enrollment count will be available in mid-October.
