On-campus enrollment at Ball State University has dropped for the fourth consecutive year, but overall enrollment is up as the number of online students grows. The school has 16,602 on-campus students this fall, down from 18,241 in the fall of 2011. That means 1,639 fewer students are taking classes on the main campus this fall than four years ago, a decrease of 9 percent. One faculty member is calling the trend “pretty worrisome,” another says it is typical for schools such as Ball State and a third attributes the decline to the high cost of a college education and concerns over student debt.
