WKU Puts Priority On Enrollment

Posted: Updated:

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - After seeing a decline in students, officials at Western Kentucky University are putting a priority on enrollment.

WKU President Gary Ransdell said the school's "highest priority" is to "recapture enrollment in the marketplace."

The Daily News reported the Bowling Green-based school is trying to overcome a $3.1 million shortfall in revenue after seeing a drop in tuition last fall and this spring.

Ransdell said there's been a decline of 300 to 400 non-traditional part-time undergraduate students over the past year.

The newspaper reported WKU has an enrollment of about 21,000 students.
