UM Sees A Decrease in Spring Enrollment

Posted: Updated:

Spring enrollment numbers are down at the University of Montana, but that didn't come as a surprise to school officials.

New numbers released Thursday show 13,554 enrolled for spring classes, which is a 6.7 percent decrease from last fall's enrollment of 14,525 students.

UM Spokeswoman, Peggy Kuhr, says the school usually sees a drop of about 5 percent in fall-to-spring enrollment, and this year UM graduated more students than usual at the end of the fall semester.

"We have made significant changes to assure greater student success and to reach out to more prospective students – in person and through mail and email – to tell them about the tremendous educational opportunities at UM," Kuhr said. "Our talented faculty, especially, are key to this effort."

The University awarded 836 degrees in fall 2013, 88 more than the previous fall and almost 200 more than fall 2010, the University Registrar's Office reported.
