Online-based classes continue to increase in enrollment and popularity at WSU due to the flexibility and convenience it offers students in fulfilling their General Education Requirements (GERs). Enrollment in online courses and in WSU’s distance degree program rises an average of 10 percent each year, said Debbie O’Donnell, director of marketing and student experience for the Center for Distance and Professional Education. “It’s a national trend that WSU will also be participating in,” O’Donnell said. “I think that the institution can expect growth in the online programs.” In addition to online GER courses for on-campus students, WSU also has numerous online degree and certificate programs for students who are unable to attend an actual university campus. “Overall, the appeal is the flexibility online courses offer,” O’Donnell said.
