Montana State University sets spring record, University of Montana ups enrollment

Montana State University reported a record number of students enrolled this spring semester — a 3% increase over last spring — and the University of Montana reported a 2.4% increase in the same period.

In a news release this week, MSU said its 16,110 students represent an all-time spring enrollment record for the Bozeman flagship and the first time the spring headcount exceeded 16,000.

“We are immensely proud of this spring enrollment because it shows how hard students are working to pursue higher education, stay enrolled and make progress toward their college degree from Montana State University,” said MSU President Waded Cruzado in a statement.

The Missoula flagship reported 10,349 students enrolled this spring, the most in spring semester since 2019. Census data shows increases in students who are veterans, have disabilities, are Native American and are first in their family to attend college.
