UM enrollment drops again as MSU hits new record high - Kurt Wilson, for The Montana Standard

Enrollment at the University of Montana dropped 4.8 percent this year, even as Montana State University announced a 4.8 percent increase — and record-high count, the institutions announced Friday. At UM, the headcount was tallied at 12,419 students, whereas MSU counted 16,440 students. The institutions include headcounts at Missoula College and Gallatin College, respectively, and the figures are preliminary. The slip this year at UM means the university has seen a 24 percent drop since 2010 in its number of full-time equivalent students, or FTE. UM tallies noses for a headcount, and it also assesses its enrollment by credits equivalent to a fulltime student.
