LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - University of Wyoming officials say enrollment projections for the spring 2018 semester are trending upward.

The Laramie Boomerang reports University of Wyoming Associate Vice Provost for Enrollment Management Kyle Moore said Friday that data suggests there would be 41 first-time spring 2018 enrollments compared to 39 in 2017.

First-time spring students are students who started at the university for the first time Monday, the first day of the spring semester.

This increase contributes to a freshman class of 1,891, which is 552 more students than the freshman class of January 2017.

Moore says preliminary fall estimates were up as well.

He also says the university has improved its retention rate - about a 1.2 percent increase overall first-time year-to-year retention for the fall.
