WSU Spokane Increases Fall Enrollment 15.1 Percent

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Washington State University Spokane's full-time enrollment for the fall 2000 semester is once again the highest ever for the campus, now in its 12th year. The campus reached 555 full-time equivalent students, which represents an increase of 67 FTE over Fall 1999 (488), a growth rate of 15.1%. The Fall 2000 figures represent an increase of over 33% (138 FTE) over the 417 FTE enrolled in Fall 1998.

"To grow by a third again as much in just two years shows the effects of continued program development," said Bill Gray, campus executive officer and dean. "We offer the proven value of a degree from WSU, convenient schedules for working professionals in Spokane, and the opportunity to do hands-on research with faculty who are breaking new ground in their fields of study."

The total number of students enrolled at WSU’s campuses statewide -- Pullman, Vancouver, Spokane and the Tri-Cities -- is 22,015, the largest enrollment ever.
