Despite hopes for enrollment stabilization, the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) report of third week enrollment showed a decline in full-time enrollments (FTE) and total headcount for both the Price and San Juan campuses.
Traditionally, FTE numbers have held a significant emphasis in the college’s focus. However, the overall headcount, which includes non-traditional students, reveal the dramatic decrease in enrollments.
