ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - University of New Mexico officials say enrollment is down slightly this spring but in line with projections.

Initial enrollment numbers for the spring semester show a total of 25,299 students.

The enrollment figure for spring 2015 was 25,816.

UNM officials say a record number of freshmen - more than 3,000 - returned for their second semester this school year.

More than 91 percent of those students are continuing into the spring semester on their way to completing their first year of college.

University president Robert Frank says that retention rate is a positive sign for future enrollment projections.
