Enrollment is up at the University of Montana Western.
The official fall 2012 enrollment numbers, which Montana Western submitted to the Montana Board of Regents, reports a headcount of 1,447. Headcount is up 71 from last fall's 1,379, according to the university.
First-year students are up 23 from last year at 477 students. Likewise, the transfer student figure is 153, up 16 from last year.
"We are of course very pleased about these numbers," Chancellor Richard Storey said of the fall 2012 enrollment report. "More and more students continue to discover why Montana Western is such a special university, and these numbers reflect the quality and value of a Montana Western education. The increased enrollment also reflects the efforts of our admissions, marketing and student success offices as well as faculty and staff who work so hard and effectively as a unified team to recruit, retain and educate our students."
