BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) _ Southeast Community College officials are reporting double-digit declines in enrollment.

SCC President Jack Huck released figures for the spring quarter and for all four quarters of the year on Tuesday.

The year-to-year figure is down nearly 12 percent, and the spring quarter enrollment is down around 17 percent from the 2012 figure. The school says the final count of full-time students for the 2012-2013 school year is just over 8,800, compared with just under 10,000 the year before. Officials say many community colleges across the nation are experiencing declines in enrollment, with fewer high school graduates and an improving economy.

The district serves 15 counties in southeast Nebraska and has campuses in Lincoln, Beatrice and Milford.
