DICKINSON (AP) - Dickinson State University officials say the school has lost about 500 students since last fall.
The Dickinson Press reports that preliminary figures show there were 1,837 students enroll this fall. That's down from 2,346 last fall.
There are 148 foreign students enrolled this fall, compared with 352 last year.
The declining enrollment comes in the wake of state audit earlier this year showed Dickinson State had given diplomas to hundreds of foreign students who didn't earn them.
DSU President D.C. Coston says the school is committed to doing things right.
