IU summer enrollment flat despite tuition discount

The second year of a 25-percent tuition discount still hasn't boosted summer semester enrollment at Indiana University's main campus.

School officials say the Bloomington campus has essentially the same number of students as last summer, when enrollment rose by about 1 percent in the discount's first year.

University spokesman Mark Land told The Herald-Times that school leaders hoped for a bigger summer enrollment jump but know that price isn't the only factor that students consider. He said some students get summer internships and some classes aren't available.

IU's regional campuses had varied changes in summer enrollment. The Kokomo campus saw a nearly 13-percent increase and Richmond campus enrollment is up 9 percent. The South Bend campus had a 9-percent drop and Gary is down 7 percent.
