Enrollment Drops at the University of Montana
Enrollment is 14,201, some 505 students fewer than the previous year
MISSOULA – The University of Montana says enrollment has decreased for the 2013 spring semester compared to a year ago.

The Missoulian reports that numbers released by the school Friday show enrollment dropped about 3.5 percent.

Enrollment at the school is 14,201, some 505 students fewer than the previous year.

University spokeswoman Peggy Kuhr says the main reason is the financial situations of students.

She says school officials also believe a sexual assault investigation might also be playing a part in the decline.

The NCAA and the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education are investigating how Missoula and the school respond to rape allegations on campus.

The school also saw a drop in fall semester enrollment. The nearly 5 percent decrease last fall followed a record enrollment in 2011.
