September 23, 2021
PULLMAN - Enrollment at Washington State University (WSU) declined by 4.2% this fall.
The university's headcount is 29,843 students, which is down from 31,159 students enrolled in the fall of 2020, according to WSU.
"The COVID-19 pandemic and its related impacts have taught us very important lessons that'll remain relevant in the years to come," Saichi Oba, vice provost of enrollment management, said. "Foremost among these lessons is that campus visits are vital to our ability to attract future Cougs, and that in-person events cannot be substituted completely with virtual offerings."
