Home News Share Print Font Size: IU Kokomo sets summer enrollment record Posted: Thursday, July 19, 2012 4:25 pm Significant tuition discounts, together with efforts to encourage timely degree completion and a wide variety of classes offered, led to record-breaking summer enrollment at Indiana University Kokomo. Chancellor Michael Harris said faculty and staff work hard to emphasize the value of year-round college attendance, as they encourage students to earn their degrees in four years. He also credits President Michael A. McRobbie’s 25 percent summer tuition discount with driving enrollment. “We are delighted that our strategic approach to summer enrollment resulted in exceptional outcomes,” Harris said. “President McRobbie’s initiative of reducing tuition was key to our success. In addition, it was our intentional selection of the mix of courses we offered, the time and days they were offered, our enrollment growth, new programs, and marketing efforts.” With the discount, IU Kokomo students who took a full academic load during the summer sessions saved about $700. Jack Tharp, vice chancellor for student affairs, said the number of students enrolled is up 8 percent from the 2011 summer session, and credit hours taken are up 15 percent. “We set a record for number of credit hours taken during the summer session,” Tharp said. “This is the highest number of students enrolled for the summer at IU Kokomo for at least the last 10 years.” The campus already plans to enhance next year’s summer program by adding a four-week “Maymester.” “This session allows students to learn in different ways, through engaging projects, community service, and national and international travel,” said Susan Sciame- Giesecke, executive vice chancellor for academic affairs. Advisors also are working with students to map out their course selections, leading to graduation in four years. Story Comments GO
