Montana State Sets All-Time Enrollment Record

Posted: September 21, 2023 by Mark L. Corner

Montana State University’s fall student enrollment is the largest in its 130-year history, with 16,978 students pursuing the many benefits of higher education at the state’s largest university. 

The new enrollment is up 2% over last fall’s headcount, an increase of 290 students. MSU’s previous enrollment record of 16,902 was set in the fall of 2018. MSU’s enrollment solidifies its position as the largest university in the four-state region of Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas.

Student headcount was not the only record set this fall. MSU also reported a record 906 students attending classes with Gallatin College MSU, which offers programs in career technical education and vocational training in five off-campus locations across the Gallatin Valley. The college’s enrollment was up 21%, or 156 students, compared to last fall, making Gallatin College MSU again the university’s fastest-growing college.
