ISU expects revenue loss from fewer international students

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — Idaho State University officials are gearing up for a $5.2 million loss in revenue as student enrollment is expected to drop more than 7 percent this fall from last year. The Idaho State Journal reports ( that figures released to university budget staff last week show enrollment would be below 9,500 students this upcoming semester. ISU Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Laura Woodworth-Ney says the numbers only reflect "a snapshot in time," but the university is prepared for decreased enrollment. She says there's been a large drop in international students, particularly those from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait because of decreased government-funded scholarship programs there. University officials say they have been focusing more on recruitment, and the impacts from those efforts will be seen in coming years.
