A new agreement signed by universities and community colleges in Kansas can help students earn associate degrees. The program is aimed at helping students who transfer from a community college to a university.
Enrollment is down this fall at the 19 community colleges in Kansas.
A new report by the Kansas Board of Regents says statewide community college enrollments are down more than 3.8 percent. That's a drop of nearly 3,100 students from last fall.
Kansas City Community College experienced the largest decline of 911 students from last fall.
The Board of Regents' head count is based on the first 20 days of the fall semester. Enrollment may go up as students sign up for a second eight-week schedule and for online courses.
