WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Williston State College has broken its spring enrollment record for the second straight year.

School officials say that 1,028 students have registered for classes, topping last year’s mark of 1,009 students. Full-time students are up 21 percent over spring 2015.

Officials attribute the gains to an early entry option for high school students the Williston State College Foundation’s scholarship program for Williams County high school graduates. More than 600 students are enrolled through those two programs.

The school is also projecting higher enrollment for next fall, due in part to the economic downturn in oil country.
