  • 1. US: IUK Summer enrollment up more than 12.5 percent | Education In Texas Education In Texas HOME Home ›› US: IUK Summer enrollment up more than 12.5 percent US: IUK Summer enrollment up more than 12.5 percent Posted on May 20, 2012 by UniversitiesNEWS Indiana University Kokomo continues its growth trend into the first summer session, with increased enrollment of more than 12 percent. Overall enrollment on first day of the session, was up 12.5 percent from the first day of the 2011 session. The number of credit hours taken grew 14.4 percent. Chancellor Michael Harris credits the increase to the quality of degree programs, the wide variety of classes offered, and the Student Success Tuition Discount program, which saves a student a year’s worth of tuition and ensures degree completion. IU President Michael A. McRobbie announced earlier this year that all IU campuses will offer a 25 percent summer school discount in an effort to provide financial relief to students, promote year-round college attendance, shorten the time it takes students to graduate, and make more effective use of campus ^ Back to Top facilities statewide. file:///C|/...mmer%20enrollment%20up%20more%20than%2012.5%20percent%20%20%20Education%20In%20Texas.htm[12/10/2013 9:39:37 PM]
  • 2. US: IUK Summer enrollment up more than 12.5 percent | Education In Texas “IU Kokomo is becoming a campus of choice for year-round education,” Harris said. “We offer the degree programs our students need to graduate in order to be ready to compete in a global economy, as well as be prepared to move on to graduate and professional schools.” Norma Fewell, information management specialist, said the campus’s newest students are enrolling during the summer as well. “We are seeing a lot more of our incoming freshmen taking summer classes,” she said. “Those students usually wait for the fall, so the tuition discount and the wider availability of summer classes is bringing them to campus earlier.” Overall, she said, preliminary data showed Kokomo to have the second-highest increase in summer enrollment among IU campuses. IU Kokomo students who take a full academic load during the summer session can save about $700 with the summer tuition discount. Jack Tharp, vice chancellor for student affairs, said most of the increase is junior- and senior-level students. “Our upper-level students are seeing the value of making progress toward a degree, rather than taking the summer off from school,” he said. In the last two years, the campus implemented team sports and joined the NAIA, revised its academic advising center, reinvented recruitment strategies, enhanced financial aid, developed a stronger relationship with Ivy Tech Community College and area high schools, and emphasized campus beautification. IU Kokomo students graduate with the least amount of debt compared to other IU regional campuses. The campus also earned the highest grade in the state, along with three private institutions, from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, which is based on what is taught in the classroom. Ninety-nine percent of the campus’ students are Indiana residents, the highest number of any IU campus. Ninety percent of those students live and work in Indiana, while 80 percent reside in north central Indiana. “Students in our area are recognizing the quality of education we provide here, and are choosing to earn their degrees on our campus,” Harris said. “We are innovative and forward thinking. Our enrollment reflects the hard work and commitment of our faculty and staff to prepare our students to succeed.” This entry was posted in Uncategorized.
