Many Dropped Students Return to Kentucky State University

FRANKFORT, Ky. ― Kentucky State University says 70 percent of the students who were dropped for nonpayment are back at school.

The school said Wednesday that 452 of the students have either paid their balances in full or registered for university payment plans.

Kentucky State says its current enrollment is 1,881.

Last week, the school said it was dropping 645 students for nonpayment.

Interim school President Raymond Burse says there’s more work to do, but says he’s thanking the students and parents who answered his call for accountability. Burse says that once students realized the school was serious about their charges being paid up front, many of them found the resources to meet their financial obligations to the university.

The school says the 193 students whose accounts remains unpaid are not enrolled in its classes.
