WSU Vancouver Continues Strong Growth in 2000-01 Academic Year

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Spring enrollment numbers show that Washington State University Vancouver is continuing to grow. The spring 2001 enrollment headcount is 1,611 — a 9 percent increase from last year’s total of 1,478. FTE totals grew by 12.6 percent to 1,033, up 116 from spring 2000.

“This has been an exceptional year for WSU Vancouver,” said Nancy Youlden, director of student services. “Enrollment has remained strong from fall to spring, which shows me that awareness of our campus is increasing. It’s also apparent that more Oregonians are recognizing and taking advantage of the Border Bill, which allows them to pay in-state tuition if enrolled in eight credits or less.

“I believe we’re also just beginning to feel the impact of the opening of our new Engineering Life Sciences building, which houses our computer science, engineering and science programs,” she added.

WSU Vancouver has seen increasing enrollment since the campus was established in 1989.
