Kansas State, other state universities see enrollment drop

Kansas State University officials are attributing the school’s first enrollment decline in nine years to tougher admission standards.

The Manhattan Mercury (http://bit.ly/1jnBGX0) reports enrollment fell by 620 students, or 2.5 percent, according to a Kansas Board of Regents report detailing last week’s official census.

The report says enrollment at state universities overall dropped by about 1 percent, or 890 students, while enrollment at the state’s technical colleges rose by 6.3 percent.

The University of Kansas and Fort Hays State are the only state universities to see a rise in student numbers.

Kansas State dean of students Pat Bosco says the school has weathered the transition from being a virtual open admissions school to one that intentionally prioritizes student success.
