MnSCU feeling financial pressure as enrollment drops


ST. PAUL -- Minnesota’s largest higher-education system is looking to make major changes as enrollment continues to fall and more institutions fail financial stress tests.

The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system saw enrollment fall by 1.9 percent last year, to 138,973. The number of credits taken by students fell by 3.8 percent.

Meanwhile, employee compensation costs are higher than expected, and lawmakers have barred MnSCU from raising tuition next year.
