Wittenberg new student enrollment down, but cash flow improving - Tiffany Y. Latta, Dayton Daily News

Wittenberg University new student enrollment has declined by 5.3 percent since last year, a drop university officials predicted. University officials announced this week there were 550 first-year students who began the new school year at the university last week, down from 581 at the start of the fall semester of last school year and short of its goal of 576 students. “Since the fall of 2014, our campus leadership has predicted that we would likely be 30-40 students short of this goal if we held our tuition discount rate steady, which has, in fact, taken place,” said Wendy Kobler, interim vice president for advancement. The decline in enrollment was no surprise and does not concern the university, which has seen stronger revenues from tuition and fees as officials work to close a five-year, $10 million budget shortfall.
