(wgvu) - Grand Valley State University announces another record enrollment for fall 2007.

Total enrollment stands at 23,464 -- up less than one percent from last fall.

This is the 25th year in a row in which Grand Valley enrolled more students than the year before.

University officials say while enrollment is up, it's up only slightly by design.

Grand Valley limited its new freshman class to about 3500 to manage growth and avoid significant additional expense.

Nearly 900 qualified freshman applicants for fall 2007 were turned away.

It's not only physical space challenging the university.

Grand Valley receives the lowest funding per student of any public university in Michigan and had its state appropriation cut by $2.3 million in the current fiscal year.

In effect .more than 3,000 students presently enrolled at Grand Valley are not recognized by the state for funding purposes.
