Fall enrollment at Indiana University Kokomo peaks at an unprecedented and historical count at 3,719, up 12.1 percent from last year (3,318) and surpassing all expectations with record-breaking numbers across the board. The largest-ever enrollment in the campus 67 years proves IU Kokomo is a university of choice. More academic programs, increases in financial aid, state-of-the-art facilities, innovative advising structure, a growing campus life, and affordable tuition all contribute to students choosing IU Kokomo for a world-class IU degree. Ninety-nine percent of IU Kokomos student body are Indiana residents, while 80 percent utilize their education in the north central Indiana region. IU Kokomo is marking another defining moment in our history, said Chancellor Michael Harris. This record enrollment is a result of a very strategic and intentional plan, and implementation. It is an outcome of the hard work of our faculty and staff, as well as community support. Our student success and north central Indiana prosperity is our mission. We will continue to be forward looking, he added. The phenomenal growth shows in all categories, including: Credit Hours, +8.3 percent Full-time students, +6.4 percent (70.2 percent) Academic Honors students, +15.4 percent Minorities, +9.4 percent Freshmen, +10.4 percent

Juniors, +2.4 percent Seniors, +5.8 percent Males, +16.5 percent Females, +9.7 percent The freshman class is distinguishable by more than simply its numbers. On the academic front, incoming freshmen with an SAT composite of 1120 or higher tops out at an impressive 12.9 percent increase over last year. These accomplishments build on and continue a two-year momentum, which includes summer enrollment. The remarkable student enrollment growth in the past two years is especially significant since data from the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census, shows that the total population of the city of Kokomo and that of Howard County today are similar to that in 1970. The Division of Allied Health Sciences boasts the highest increase for major-specific programs on campus, with registration up 30.9 percent. The newly added health sciences degree accounts for 23 percent of that enrollment. On the graduate level, the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree rose an incredible 40 percent, while the Master of Science in Nursing tallies 24 students in its new program. The IU Kokomo campus now offers 15 new degree programs, more online and Friday courses, as well as additional funding for scholarships and financial aid. Students find a welcoming atmosphere where campus life is abundant through competitive sports in its inaugural year of the NAIA, and active student organizations like The Correspondent, Students in Free Enterprise, and the newest group cheerleading.
