KU enrollment down this year
Total enrollment at Kansas University [declined to 29,260] this year, according to 20th day of class counts released today by the Kansas Board of Regents.Overall, however, enrollment in the six universities that compose the regents system [hit a record high of 90,063 (PDF)]. This is the first time the system has topped 90,000 students.KU administrators blamed the decline in enrollment on a more stringent dismissal policy [in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences]. About 884 students were dismissed from the college last year, 350 more than the year before.Enrollment at KU's other two campuses, however, set record highs. Enrollment at the Edwards Campus was up 12 percent. KU Medical Center enrollment was also a record, at 2,918. : http://www.news.ku.edu/2007/september/20/enrollment.shtml : http://www.kansasregents.org/download/news/092007%20-%20Press%20Release%20-%20Fall%20Enrollment.pdf : http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2007/sep...
