For the first time in seven years, Wayne State University’s overall student body has grown this fall, officials announced Thursday.

Meanwhile, the four- and six-year graduation rates have also improved at the state’s urban research university, but still lag behind national rates.

Enrollment is up 0.4 percent — or 104 students — bringing the student population to 27,326. Officials have set a goal of 30,000 enrolled students by 2021. The university began losing students in 2009, when enrollment was 30,820.
