Enrollment at Utah colleges expected to jump by nearly 25 percent in 10 years | The Salt Lake Tribune

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.

Weber State University President Charles Wight foresees current recruiting programs geared at Weber County’s Latino population driving the increase at his school.

The university’s Community Education Center runs a number of such programs from its Ogden location. The centers hold information meetings geared at undeserved and nontraditional students ­and their families. A bigger center is set to go up near the university in the next few years.
