Hays Fort Hays State University's spring enrollment is nearing a record 10,000 students.
And the school says the enrollment numbers could go even higher, hitting 11,500 when Chinese students attending some partner universities return to class.
The school says enrollment grew by 1.4 percent for on-campus students and by 6.9 percent for its Virtual College.
The biggest growth came from its Chinese partnerships. By the 20th day of the spring semester, that enrollment already had jumped by 20.1 percent to 1,709 students.
