Climbing University of Wyoming enrollment stretches finan


LARAMIE, Wyoming — About 100 more students will attend the University of Wyoming this fall than last year, but the added enrollment could pose a problem for some departments.

The Laramie Boomerang reports ( ) that in-state resident students, who make up the majority of the school's population, pay about $4,400 per year. The remaining $9,000 in student costs comes from state funding.

Associate Vice President of Undergraduate Education Alyson Hagy says before admissions, the school had made room for about 75 more students in fall 2015, with hopes they wouldn't all go into science, technology, engineering and math fields.

She says the college of Arts and Sciences, which accounts for 33 percent of UW's total enrollment and 57 percent of the credit hours for all undergraduates, is feeling the strain of added students.
