Ohio Colleges See Signs Of Growing Enrollment

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Officials at some Ohio colleges are pleased to see enrollment holding steady or increasing slightly a year after dipping more than expected overall as schools switched to a semester schedule.

The Columbus Dispatch  reports combined enrollment dropped about 13,000 students last year at the 17 schools that moved to semesters. Two-year colleges were hit especially hard and forced to cut budgets.

Columbus State Community College expects to have about the same number of students this year. Hocking College in southwest Ohio anticipates a slight increase, and Ohio University in nearby Athens expects more freshmen and transfer students.

Ohio State University is bracing for about 950 more students.

The University of Cincinnati didn't see a dip with the semester switch but expects to have a record-high 43,000 students.
