Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Fall enrollment at West Virginia's public universities and colleges has topped 90,000 students for the first time.
The Higher Education Policy Commission says a record 93,712 students were enrolled at the start of the fall semester, a 6.7 percent increase from the same period in 2008.
The total includes both four-year and two-year institutions.
Higher Education chancellor Brian Noland says the challenge now is to retain and graduate students.
