DETROIT (AP) – An increase in the numbers of out-of-state students is contributing to an overall rise in student population at some of Michigan’s public universities.

The change comes as the schools compete for a smaller pool of high school graduates each year in Michigan, according to the Detroit News. Out-of-state and international students, meanwhile, pay higher rates — helping schools’ budgets.

Schools reporting highs this year include Michigan State University, University of Michigan-Flint and Grand Valley State.

Overall, enrollment has been up at the state’s 15 public universities in recent years.
