WWU hits record enrollment for fall quarter

Western Washington University has hit a record enrollment of nearly 15,000 students for the fall quarter.

Although the plan had been to hold enrollment to fall quarter 2009 levels, the school says overwhelming responses by admitted students as well as increased retention of current students resulted in an additional 400 students.

Fall enrollment at Western is 14,979 students, including all full-time, part-time, undergraduate and graduate students and students who attend Western programs in Everett, Port Angeles, Bremerton, Seattle and Anacortes.
