DAYTON, Ohio — A report says enrollment at Wright State University could hit its lowest point in more than a decade this coming school year.
The number of full-time Wright State students is projected to drop from 14,651 students last year to 13,861 this academic year.
That’s according to a budget proposal approved by trustees on Thursday.
The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/2rRV1H3 ) that the potential drop is nearly double the decline between the 2015-2016 school year and last school year.
The drop amounts to a decline of nearly 5.4 percent,
The newspaper says the decline is difficult for cash-strapped Wright State, whose biggest source of revenue is tuition.
Interim president Curtis McCray said in a campus-wide email Friday that the school’s budget remains fragile with enrollment and income uncertain.
