IU East no longer smallest regional campus in credit hours

January 26th, 2010

Indiana University East is no longer the smallest Indiana University regional campus in terms of credit hours.  IU East surpassed IU Kokomo in the number of credit hours taken by students enrolled in the spring 2010 semester.

Spring enrollment at IU East is 2,769, an increase of 16.2 percent compared to spring semester of 2009.  This is the largest percentage increase among all IU campuses.  Students are enrolled in 28,003 credit hours, an increase of 16.5 percent.  Figures for enrollment and credit hours are both new record highs for spring semester.

“We’re delighted to once again see remarkable enrollment growth at IU East,” said Chancellor Nasser Paydar.  “This is truly significant when one considers the impact of more bachelor’s and master’s degree graduates living and working in our region and the value that they will add to companies and communities throughout eastern Indiana and western Ohio.”

IU East’s enrollment has grown continuously since fall 2007, when the campus, in partnership with Ivy Tech Community College – Richmond, transformed its mission to become a baccalaureate and master’s degree institution.  

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