IU Kokomo sets summer enrollment
Posted: Thursday, J uly 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. McRobbies 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 McRobbies 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
J ack 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 years 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.
Harris said the campus continues to search for innovative ways to help students achieve a world-class education.
