KOKOMO, Ind. — Indiana University Kokomo sets another enrollment record this spring semester with a 3.5 percent increase, with growth at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
There are 3,261 students accounting for 31,662 credit hours – a milestone in the campus' history for spring semester. Minority students now represent 11.2 percent of the student population – another significant achievement.
"IU Kokomo continues to provide students with excellent degree programs that are relevant to the needs of the region, and are taught by world-class faculty," said Interim Chancellor Susan Sciame-Giesecke. "We are focused on the complete collegiate experience. IU Kokomo is a college of choice."
The Master of Business Administration program contributes to the majority of growth at the graduate level. IU Kokomo also offers master's degrees in nursing, public management, education, and liberal studies.
Sciame-Giesecke attributes the growth to a variety of campus initiatives including: 15 new degree programs, more online and Friday courses, and additional funding for scholarships and financial aid. The campus also has a vibrant student life program, including NAIA volleyball, basketball and cross country teams.
