University of Maine System Enrollment Down

FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) – Enrollment is down 2 percent across the University of Maine System this fall when compared to last fall, and down more than 6 percent when compared to the fall of 2009. The flagship campus in Orono – with a more than 3 percent increase in enrollment – and the Fort Kent campus are the only two with enrollment increases this fall. The University of Southern Maine saw overall enrollment drop almost 5 percent. The numbers – which include undergraduate and graduate enrollment – were released this week at the trustees meeting in Farmington. The drop is due in large part to a shrinking number graduates from Maine high schools. The university has launched efforts to bring in more out-of-state and international students.
