Washburn University reports fall 2009 enrollment figures

TOPEKA – Fall enrollment at Washburn University totals 6,652 students enrolled in 74,185 credit hours. Head count enrollment is up from fall 2008 by 107 students (1.6 percent) and student credit hours rose by 984 (1.3 percent).

“The University is aggressively pursuing strategies and procedures to get information in the hands of potential students who would benefit from a Washburn education,” said Jerry B. Farley, president. “We are pleased enrollment is up, which continues to confirm the value of a Washburn education.”

The increase reverses two consecutive years of enrollment declines and was fueled by increases in enrollment by both Kansas residents and students from out of state. More than 90 percent of students attend classes on campus and two-thirds are enrolled on a full-time basis.
