Spring, 2014, DCB Enrollment Increases 5.5%

Posted on 2/19/2014

The spring, 2014, census at Dakota College is 5.5% higher in the full time equivalency (FTE) category than it was in the spring of 2013; and, it is 25% higher than ten years ago. The FTE calculation is produced by totaling the number of credit hours for which all students are enrolled and dividing by 15. So, it serves as a standard or benchmarking measure to account for the fact that students enroll in varying numbers of credits that can range from 1 to 21. And although the total headcount enrollment for spring, 2014, is nine students fewer than last spring, this number is more than made up by the number of full time students enrolled. Spring-to-spring enrollment data shows a 5% increase in the number of full-time students enrolled.

Although the research is not complete, it appears that the retention initiatives and retention personnel that have been put in place have had an impact in student persistence to graduation at DCB.
