College enrollment down; state focuses on grad rates 11 - Aziza Musa, Arkansas Online

The number of students at Arkansas' colleges and universities has slipped by nearly 5 percent since fall 2012, in part because fewer students are enrolling at the state's two-year colleges. Some 166,689 students -- including those in high school taking college-level courses -- were enrolled at the state's colleges and universities this fall, according to preliminary data from the Arkansas Department of Higher Education. In fall 2012, the schools enrolled 174,667 students. The trends are similar nationwide.
