ATLANTA (AP) -- University System of Georgia officials say fall enrollment in the state's 31 colleges has declined by nearly 4,900 students since fall of 2012.

Officials said Wednesday that about 309,500 students enrolled in courses for the semester. Of that number, about 274,500 students are taking a full course load.

The figures were distributed in the system's Fall 2013 Enrollment Report, and officials say the decline in enrollment translates to an approximate 1.6 percent drop in the state's overall student body.

University system officials also announced the Board of Regents has elected Philip Wilheit Sr. as the board's chairman and Neil Pruitt as the board's vice chairman.

Wilheit is president of Wilheit Packaging and Marketing Images and Pruitt is the CEO of UHS-Pruitt Corporation, an assisted living health care company.
