Summer enrollment is down at the University of Georgia for the third straight year and is now at its lowest in 14 years. Final figures show a summer semester student count of 13,562 at UGA’s Athens and extended campuses, said Tracy Giese, public relations coordinator in the UGA Office of the Vice President for Instruction. That’s down 2.1 percent from last year, a smaller decrease than in the previous two years
Summer enrollment dropped from 15,731 in 2010 to 14,812 in 2011, then declined again to 13,854 last summer, an overall decline of nearly 14 percent. This summer’s 13,562 students is the lowest summer enrollment at UGA since 1999. The decline might have been even steeper without the addition of a slate of three dozen online courses, which allow students to continue their studies while they’re back home for the summer or traveling. About 1,100 students this summer enrolled in the courses.
