LARAMIE — The University of Wyoming enrolled more than 1,000 new transfer students — many coming from one of the state's seven community colleges — for the fall 2017 semester.
That's a 12.3 percent increase from the fall of 2016 and comes at a time when the university is working to boost its enrollment.
UW officials say it won't be long before transfers make up half or more of the incoming students.
The Laramie Boomerang reports that the university has established a Transfer Success Center to guide transfer students and make their transition from community college to the university smoother.
In addition, a new state law sets deadlines for the development of a common transcript and course numbering system between the state's public institutions of higher education.
