Enrollment at Wichita State University in spring 2008 is 14,092 students, an increase of 47 students, or .3 percent, compared to spring 2007, according to the official enrollment report given to the Kansas Board of Regents following the 20th day of classes.
WSU students are taking 142,182 credit hours in spring 2008 compared to 139,266 in spring 2007, an increase of 2,916 credit hours or 2.1 percent.
"We are pleased to see modest increases in our head count and, more important, credit hours," said Ron Kopita, vice president for campus life and university relations. "We are continuing to work on strategic growth activities through the use of Sedgwick County scholarships, Dean's scholarships and other programs."
The number of new international undergraduate students is up 16.4 percent this spring compared to a year ago. Credit hour production for international undergraduate students is up 18.5 percent from the same time last year.
There are 1,275 international students taking classes at WSU this spring. The students represent 90 countries, with the largest number of students coming from India (315), Malaysia (141) and China (83).
There are 583 students enrolled from out of state, an increase of more than 10 percent.
"We're also pleased with the diversity of our student body and the opportunity it provides for the more than 9,000 students who attend Wichita State from Sedgwick County," said Kopita.
