UW reaches lowest enrollment since the late 1980s
October 19, 2023
CASPER — Fall enrollment at the University of Wyoming continues to slide and has reached its lowest point in decades, but the school’s most recent census provided some good news for university leaders as they look to reverse worrying attendance trends.
UW recorded jumps in both graduate and transfer students, while the school’s freshman retention rate also increased this fall, the university announced last month.
Yet even with the gains, UW’s overall enrollment continued to decline, marking the fifth consecutive year enrollment at Wyoming’s flagship school has fallen.
