Washington State also reported it is becoming more diverse, with nearly one in four students self-identifying as a student of color.

About 89 percent of all undergraduates at WSU are residents of the state.

Fall enrollment was down slightly on the Pullman and Tri-Cities campuses, but up in Spokane and Vancouver.
