As North Dakota University System campuses release preliminary enrollment numbers this week, officials say there’s no reason to doubt the integrity of the figures.
The manipulation of enrollment numbers at Dickinson State University was an isolated case, said Michel Hillman, the system’s vice chancellor for student and academic affairs.
“We did not find any evidence that any of the things that happened at Dickinson are happening on the other 10 campuses,” Hillman said.
UND reported a first-day enrollment of 14,076 students, a 4.8 percent increase over this time last year. First-day enrollment at North Dakota State University is stable at 14,240 students, an increase of 36 students.
