GREAT FALLS  — Enrollment for Great Falls College MSU is up almost 10 percent for the spring semester, according to official census data.

The college has 1,362 students this semester compared to 1,256 students a year ago, marking an increase of 70 full-time equivalent students to an overall total of 800 full-time equivalent students.

“It is wonderful to see our focused efforts to recruit and retain students are showing up in our enrollments,” said Dr. Stephanie Erdmann, CEO/dean of Great Falls College.

This semester is the second straight semester enrollment has increased at Great Falls College and enrollments in the spring can still increase since Great Falls College divides its semester into two blocks.  

Students still can apply for the second block this spring. It begins after spring break on March 13.

“At Great Falls College, we offer extraordinary education in health care, trades, business and computer technology. Graduates of our many occupational career programs see an excellent return on investment. And for those seeking a four-year degree, they can start here, live at home, save a little money getting general education credits and then transfer anywhere to complete a bachelor’s degree.”

The college added the 8-Week Advantage a few years ago to help students juggle their many responsibilities, Erdmann said. This allows our students to concentrate on just a couple classes at a time while accumulating credits at the same rate they would with 16-week semesters.
