Albany State sees enrollment decreases

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State University officials say they're working to reverse a startling decrease in enrollment.

Fall enrollment is down 10.7-percent... the highest rate in the University System.

ASU officials say the decline cannot be pinned down to just one cause.

They hired new administrative leaders and are restructuring the Office of Admissions and planning to ramp up recruiting efforts for next year.

"The data is going drive us to strategic decisions that must be made here and everyone is taking a close look at the data and operating off that base."

Albany State's official fall enrollment released today by the University System is 3,492.
