IU East continues to increase enrollment during summer session

June 16th, 2011

Indiana University East experienced a continued increase in its enrollment during its first summer session.

During the first summer session, the number of students enrolled increased by 11.6 percent compared to last year, and credit hour enrollment increased by 11.8 percent.

The increase in summer enrollment follows record enrollment figures at IU East since 2007, a trend that is a consequence of IU East’s new mission as a baccalaureate and master’s degree institution.

“The summer term is extremely important to IU East and its students, as it represents an opportunity for students to get back on a four-year track toward their bachelor’s degree, particularly if they have changed majors, or to accelerate their time to degree,” said Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Larry Richards. “That enrollments are increasing in the summer, as well as during the academic year, is a positive sign that we are meeting student needs.”

IU East is continuing to register students for the upcoming Summer II session that will start July 5, and the fall semester, which begins August 29.

Enrollment figures are not official until approved by the President of Indiana University. The official census for Indiana University and its regional campuses is taken each fall.
