Enrollment has stayed virtually flat this semester at the University of Maine at Augusta, but the 5,000-student commuter college is seeing a surge in students taking courses online. UMA — which operates campuses in Augusta, Bangor and at satellite campuses throughout the state — has enrolled 5,080 students this fall, a slight rise from the 5,054 it enrolled a year ago, according to enrollment reports released Friday. Students’ average credit load also crept up, according to Jonathan Henry, UMA’s dean of enrollment services. The average student this semester is enrolled in 8.29 credit hours, up from 8.24 last fall and 7.96 in the fall of 2008. A full-time student takes at least 12 credit hours, or four classes.
