OSU enrollment increases, mostly online and on Bend campus
CORVALLIS — Enrollment at Oregon State University is 2.9 percent higher than last year, although Corvallis has only seen a fraction of that growth.
The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports that OSU's total fall enrollment is 31,303. School officials announced Monday that OSU has 852 students more than the start of the 2015 school year and is the state's largest university for the third year in a row.
Officials say the increase in students studying at OSU's main campus in Corvallis is less than one percent. The university's online enrollment and enrollment at its Bend campus jumped by more than 10 percent each.
OSU officials say the school has grown over the past three years. That sets it apart from other public universities in the state, where enrollment is starting to decline.
