Students walking across campusNorthwestern College has set a spring enrollment record with 1,406 students. This year’s number is up from 1,261 last spring.

One of the factors in the total enrollment record is an all-time high for online and graduate student enrollment. This spring 461 students are enrolled in Northwestern’s online Master of Education and degree-completion programs in early childhood and nursing, up from 429 last fall.

Northwestern also has 24 new transfer students on campus this semester, the largest contingent in many years.

“We are excited to break more enrollment records,” says Mark Bloemendaal, vice president for enrollment and marketing. “More students are realizing that our standout programs, integration of faith and learning, and welcoming community provide outstanding preparation to help them lead lives of significance.”
