Enrollment Drops Again at SIUC
Southern Illinois University's Carbondale campus is seeing a nearly 1,300-student drop in enrollment this spring. The official spring enrollment for the campus stands at about 17,100. That's down from about 18,400 in January 2012.
Chancellor Rita Cheng said full-year projections are made with the official fall enrollment, so no budget or staffing adjustments will be made for the remainder of the spring semester.
Overall, SIUC enrollment has dropped by more than 2,600 students since fall 2011.
