The University of Montana Thursday announced its sixth consecutive semester of enrollment growth.

According to UM, over 10,300 students enrolled in classes this spring. That’s a 2.5% increase over this time last year.

UM said the year-over-year growth in enrollment is driven by an increase in undergraduate students and the university retaining students as they continue after their freshman year.
