Enrollment at Utah colleges expected to jump by nearly 25 percent in 10 years - ANNIE KNOX, The Salt Lake Tribune

As Utah graduates walk the stage and toss their caps, their alma maters are already preparing for coming waves of graduates. Utah's college student population is expected to swell by roughly 25 percent during the next 10 years. The current batch of about 174,000 students statewide will likely rise to about 226,000 by 2024, according to new estimates from Utah higher-education managers. The growth will require more student advisers, class space and other resources, members of the Board of Regents said after their monthly meeting Friday. The panel oversees Utah's eight public institutions. Snow College, Utah Valley University and Weber State University are expected to see the biggest jumps. At the University of Utah, full-time enrollment is expected to bump up by about 13 percent over the next 10 years. http://www.sltrib.com/home/2517268-155/enrollment-at-utah-colleges-expected-to
