The Legislature, during its recently completed legislative session, funded WSU’s $14.4 million biennial operating budget request for core funding to support the continuing development of the College of Medicine.

The operating budget package included allocations to complete per-year funding for the College of Medicine’s existing cohort of 60 students, while also funding first- and second-year instruction for an additional 20 students. In total, this allows the college to admit 80 students in fall 2019.

The request was WSU’s top legislative priority.
