KOKOMO, Ind. – A substantial increase of freshman students plays a significant role in the impressive enrollment growth this fall semester at Indiana University Kokomo. Preliminary reports show the numbers are up in this category by 17.4 percent as of today (August 22), while overall attendance is ahead of last year.
The number of students attending full time reflects an all-time record. In addition, credit hours are coming in at a 4.6 percent increase from fall 2010.
“I am thrilled at the growth on our campus and the dedication of our faculty and staff,” said Chancellor Michael Harris. “This is a direct result of many hours of hard work throughout the past year. I cannot express enough gratitude to all who helped IU Kokomo reach this significant milestone.”
There also is an upturn in the number of recent high school graduates choosing IU Kokomo to further their education. The Office of Admissions staff has dedicated the past year to visiting area high schools and sharing the degree programs available on our campus.
“There is a new energy and attitude going around the high schools about IU Kokomo and all it has to offer,” said Tyana Lange, director of enrollment management. “From new degree programs to club sports, students see our campus as a campus of choice, not just convenience. They know they will earn a world class IU degree and have the chance to experience campus life in a fun, friendly, and supportive environment.”
IU Kokomo launched this fall 10 new degree programs, additional online classes, and is offering more courses on Fridays.
Indiana University Kokomo serves north central Indiana.
