Headcount Padding: Wichita State Reports Largest Student Increase in State

Overall enrollment at Wichita State University is up, but fewer students are seeking degrees at the Kansas university this year than any of the last seven years, despite a multi-million dollar investment in student recruiting.

But Friday, the university announced enrollment numbers indicating the fastest growth of any four-year school in the state.

That increase was achieved through the last-minute enrollment of non-degree-seeking senior citizens, high school students, and working professionals in half-credit-hour courses.
