Around 21% Of First-Year Students Cancel Deposits At University Of Portland

(Portland, OR) - Approximately 21-percent of first-year students who signed up to attend the University of Portland this fall have since backed out. The university's vice president for financial affairs sent an email to faculty and staff obtained by KGW8. It says deposits were received from almost 11-hundred students, but only 860 ended up starting classes this week. This has caused the school to be 8.9-million dollars behind expectations. School officials will now work on a plan to bring in more money.
