14 Feb Study shows BSC as college of choice in central North Dakota
In a national report regarding 2017 high school graduates in central North Dakota recently released, Bismarck State College (BSC) ranks as the graduates’ first choice for a college. This is true both for all students and for students who are the first generation in their families to pursue a college education. The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and ACT, Inc., conducted the study. ACT, Inc., is the organization that conducts standardized testing for all North Dakota high school students.
Because BSC has more first-time freshmen from North Dakota enrolled than any other institution in the state this fall, college administrators expect to see the same results from the AACC/ACT 2018 study. BSC had 806 first-time freshmen from North Dakota in the fall of 2018 — 93.3% of the 2018 first-time freshmen class. The total freshmen class of 2018 numbered 1,995.
