The enrollment for the spring semester at Eastern Wyoming College once again saw an increase. The headcount increased 8.9% and the Full-Time Equivalency (FTE) increased 8.2%.
Full-time headcount was up 54 students and part-time headcount was up 77 students resulting in a total increase of 131 students.
The FTE was 1,055.42 which is an increase of 79.92 FTE or 8.2%. EWC serves a large part of Eastern Wyoming including a branch campus in Douglas and outreach centers in Chugwater, Glendo, Glenrock, Guernsey, Hulett, LaGrange, Lusk, Moorcroft, Newcastle, Sundance, Upton and Wheatland. Enrollment from outreach accounts for 36.8% of EWC's total spring FTE.
"Eastern Wyoming offers quality educational opportunities. Excellent instructors and student service support. Solid, caring people and programs make it easier for hardworking recruiters to draw students from out of the region and state-and attract those who clearly see the advantage is right here at home," said EWC President Dr. Tom Armstrong.
