University of Wyoming spring enrollment increases, fewer students on academic probation


LARAMIE, Wyoming — University of Wyoming officials say enrollment is increasing, in part due to a focus on recruiting in-state students and making it easier for students to transfer credits from a two-year school to the Laramie campus.

The university saw an enrollment increase of 105 students in the fall of 2014 compared to the previous spring.

The Laramie Boomerang reports ( ) the spring 2015 numbers are looking strong. Vice President for Student Affairs Sara Axelson told the Board of Trustees on Friday that spring registration has increased by 375 students, compared to a loss of 350 students in spring 2014.

While the final enrollment numbers won't be available until after classes start on Jan. 26, Axelson says the numbers are encouraging.

Axelson says an effort to recruit more engineering students also is paying off, with 165 more students being accepted for fall 2015 enrollment.
