Kansas College Nearly Meets First Enrollment Goal

Associated Press - November 24, 2014 7:48 pm

Kansas University officials say they have nearly met a first-semester target of international students enrolled through a recruitment program.

Earlier this year, the university and company Shorelight Education formally announced a partnership for the International Academic Accelerator Program, which is aimed at increasing the school’s international enrollment to help diversify the student body.

A university official says about 7 percent of undergrads are from other countries. Overall, about 9 percent of the school’s students are international.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports officials had a goal of recruiting 60 students for its first semester in the program and ended up with 57 this fall.

For about a $45,000 flat fee, the program provides about a year’s worth of room, board, tuition and activities for participating international students.
