COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) The University of Missouri is expecting fewer freshman this fall compared to last year.
A memo from Ann Korschgen, the university’s vice provost for enrollment management, and Barbara Rupp, director of admissions, estimates freshman enrollment this fall at 6,165 based on current deposits. That’s a drop of nearly 480 from last year.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/13QLkq3 ) that officials say the university has anticipated the drop in freshmen as the number of high school students in Missouri and the Midwest declines.
Deposits from out-of-state students also dropped by 61 this year, but that number is still up 423 from two years ago.
