EUGENE, OR (AP) -

Enrollment at the University of Oregon fell 2 percent this year, marking four years of declining enrollment for the school.

The Register-Guard reports that a total of 23,634 students enrolled at the university this year, down 2 percent from fall 2105 and 4 percent from the record high in fall 2012.

Overall, the student population at the university has been falling or flat for a half-dozen years after UO officials quickly increased the student population in a major growth spurt.

Though overall enrollment is falling, the number of out-of-state graduate students has been growing, with 11 percent more undergraduates coming from outside Oregon this year compared to 2002. The number of in-state graduate students has dropped 25 percent since peak enrollment in 2002.
