BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- After seeing a decline in students, officials at Western Kentucky University are putting a priority on enrollment.

WKU President Gary Ransdell says the school's "highest priority" is to "recapture enrollment in the marketplace."

The Bowling Green-based school is trying to overcome a $3.1 million shortfall in revenue after seeing a drop in tuition last fall and this spring.

Ransdell says there's been a decline of 300 to 400 non-traditional part-time undergraduate students over the past year.

The newspaper reports WKU has an enrollment of about 21,000 students
