MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- The state's public universities and colleges could get more time submit their student enrollment counts, which are now calculated on the 10th day of each new semester.
The Lewiston Tribune reports the state Board of Education is expected to consider a plan Thursday that would delay the counting of fall semester students until mid-October, while spring enrollment wouldn't be calculated until mid-March.
Colleges and universities typically use the 10th day of class as a measuring stick because it cancels out students who enroll on the first day and quickly drop off.
Idaho trustees are looking at delaying the count after some institutions complained that by submitting their numbers on the 10th day, they were excluding a number of high school students earning college credits through the state's dual-enrollment program.
