University of Winnipeg enrollment is down 2.3 per cent so far compared to this time a year ago.

The biggest drop is a 2.5 per cent decline in undergraduates — 9,348 students, down 242 from the same date last year.

Meanwhile, the still-fledgling masters programs are up 16 per cent, to 138 students overall.

U of W officials said self-identified aboriginal students now exceed 10 per cent of total enrolment, one of the highest figures of any Canadian university for indigenous participation.

Significantly for the university’s budget, credit hours — course loads on which tuition is based — are down 1.4 per cent.

There is a 3.5 per cent increase in international students, for a total of 537.
