MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — Officials at the University of Idaho say graduate student applications have increased 2 percent for the fall semester compared to last year.

The school also tells the Moscow-Pullman Daily News  that there is an increase in applications at the master's and doctoral degree levels for the College of Science and the College of Engineering.

School officials say the increase in graduate applications is a result of the school's efforts to recruit internationally. The school says that this year there has been a 10 percent increase in international applications, with most of those coming from India and China.
