Ivy Tech fall semester enrollment tops 113,000

Ivy Tech Community College says it has set a fall semester enrollment record with more than 113,000 students taking classes at its campuses across Indiana.

That gives Indianapolis-based Ivy Tech a 1.6-percent increase from the 111,452 students it reported last fall. School officials say they expect the number to climb since people can still sign up for 12-week and eight-week classes that start later this fall.

Ivy Tech has seen the number of students at its system explode in recent years, with this fall's enrollment up 73 percent since 2005.

School President Thomas Snyder said it is starting to face shortages in faculty and student service staff, along with space constraints at some campuses.
