TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Officials say non-resident students now outnumber Alabama residents at the University of Alabama.

Al.com reports (https://bit.ly/XnX4zv) that there are 17,830 Alabama residents enrolled this fall compared to 18,325 out-of-state, military and international students.

In the 2014 freshman class — the largest in school history — there are 2,474 Alabama residents and 4,382 out-of-state students (including military and international).

Out-of-state students tipped the numbers in their favor this year after a six-year trend of decreasing resident enrollment.

Al.com reports that in-state enrollment peaked in 2008 at 3,207 students and gradually began dropping while out-of-state enrollment continued to grow.
