UW River Falls Enrollment Increase

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is encouraged by its early fall enrollment numbers which show an increase in the number of new students in the university’s classrooms.

UWRF is one of the campuses in the University of Wisconsin System seeing increases in new student enrollment. Systemwide enrollment estimates show 26,442 first-year students, including freshmen and first-year transfers, enrolled this fall compared to 25,869 in fall 2021.

Overall enrollment at UWRF is slightly down from last year, as is the case at most of the UW System comprehensive campuses which show an average drop of three percent, attributable to the unfortunate impacts of the pandemic on student persistence. In response, UWRF has enhanced student support efforts including advising, counseling and adding a Dean of Students position.

Additionally, UWRF is developing new programs for students to help their transition from high school to college.

UW-River Falls was recently recognized by both U.S. News and World Report and Princeton Review for its academic excellence.
