IU East summer enrollment increases 15.6 percent

May 23rd, 2012

Summer enrollment at Indiana University East has increased relative to the same time last year. The first summer session, which began May 13, has increased in both credit hours and the number of students taking summer courses.

For the first summer session, enrollment has grown 15.6 percent in credit hours and 18.3 percent in student headcount. IU East had the highest percentage growth in enrollment of all Indiana University campuses.

Since 2007, IU East has experienced a continuous increase in enrollment from the same semester the previous year.

Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Larry Richards attributes the growth to a variety of factors.

“Certainly the change of mission to a baccalaureate and graduate institution has been a major factor, but we have also been creative in how we have pursued this new mission, developing innovative degree programs, focusing our marketing and recruiting efforts, and retaining students from one semester to the next,” Richards said. “IU East is truly a different institution than it was in 2007 and is now serving quite different needs in the region and beyond.”

IU East is continuing to register students for the upcoming second summer session that will start July 2, and for the fall semester, which begins August 27.

Enrollment figures are not official until approved by the President of Indiana University.
