SEM Goal 8: Increase enrollment of new fall transfer students.

SEM Goal 7 addresses the expansion of online program majors. Distance education provides options for students who are unable to come to campus because of location or time constraints, or who need greater flexibility in their schedules because of work or personal commitments. We continue to have strong growth in new students to WSU who are online program majors.

For fall 2018 we saw an increase of 49.3 percent over fall 2017, or 110 new additional online majors. WSU now has 11 undergraduate degrees, 11 graduate degrees, two undergraduate certificates and four graduate certificates that are fully online, and one undergraduate program that is a hybrid program (more than 50 percent of the courses are online).
