FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Fall enrollment at University of Michigan-Flint has reached a record high for the eighth consecutive year.
The Flint Journal reports (http://tinyurl.com/ot5e954 ) the university has 8,574 students enrolled this year, up from 8,555 in 2013. The university said graduate, international and dual enrollment grew significantly. The school has a capacity of 10,000 students.
Graduate student enrollment rose almost 6 percent to roughly 1,500, in part because of new programs such as a doctorate in physical therapy.
A record 663 international students are enrolled from countries including Tunisia, Mongolia and Ukraine. That's a 22 percent increase from fall 2013. There were just 54 international students at the school in 2005.
