The Department of Higher Education has issued the final enrollment figures for Fall 2016:

…………..….……head count……….……..FTE
NMIMT……..…..up 0.7%..............down 0.4%
NMSU……...…down 4.2%............down 3.3%
UNM……..…...down 1.8%............down 1.9%
ENMU…..…....down 0.8%............down 1.5%
NMHU………..down 4.0%.............down 0.3%
NNMC………….up 4.1%.................up 10.7%
WNMU……..…up 0.3%................down 1.0%

(FTE = Full time Equivalency, 15 credits for undergraduates, 12 units for graduates)

Good news Western’s change in enrollment is about the same as everyone else, except for NNMC which is a special case.

More good news, graduate FTE’s have increased from 357 in 2014 to 533 this year a 49.3% increase. Mostly due to the masters in social work online, however, this seems to be topping out.

Bad news, undergraduate FTE’s have dropped from 1864 in 2014 to 1614 this year a drop of 13.4%. Dorm occupancy has dropped from 463 in 2014 to 300 this year.

Some other comments: About half the credits generated by Western now come from online classes. That means that Western has a lot of unused classroom space that needs to be maintained and Western becomes less of an economic resource as fewer and fewer out of town students come to Silver City.

The University administration says enrollment is static. The total number enrolled may remain about the same but its makeup in changing rapidly from regular face to face classes to online classes and the mix is changing from mostly undergraduate to a significant number of graduate students.
