West Virginia State University has had its enrollment jump 7.5 percent since last fall, according to preliminary figures from the school.
Transfer students are responsible for the largest increase, about 9.5 percent over last fall’s numbers. The new freshmen class for the 2012-2013 academic year is just more than 600.
“The entire university community has been actively engaged in welcoming our new freshmen and transfer students to the WVSU campus,” said Kitty McCarthy, interim vice president for enrollment management and student affairs. “We’re excited they’re here, and we look forward to working with each student to ensure their academic and personal success.”
The majority of students who attend the university (57 percent) are from Kanawha County, followed by Putnam at 13 percent. An additional 17 percent of students are from other areas of West Virginia, with the final 13 percent attending from out of state.
Official numbers for the incoming class of the 2012-2013 academic year will be released mid-October.
