?Fall 2008 enrollment at Indiana University Southeast is breaking records across almost all admissions categories.
Indiana University Bloomington released official enrollment counts Thursday, and IU Southeast’s total enrollment grew to 6,482 students - a 3.9 percent increase over last year.
All of those students are taking more classes, as evidenced by the record number of 64,066 credit hours taken, which is a 4.3 percent increase over 2007.
Additionally, the 2008 freshmen class is the largest in IU Southeast history. There are a record 1,070 first year beginners this year, an increase of 21.2 percent from last year’s freshmen class.
Records were also broken in diversity enrollment with significant increases in African American (25.9 percent increase), American Indiana (7.7 percent increase), and Asian American (28.8 percent increase) students.
IU Southeast also toppled marks in overall non-resident enrollment. Non-resident enrollment is up 7.3 percent to a record 1,868 students. Reciprocity students grew 6.3 percent to a record 1,796.
“This is a striking response to the hard work of our Enrollment Management team and the detailed enrollment management strategic plan which was implemented in 2007 and will extend through 2010,” Chancellor Sandra R. Patterson-Randles said at the annual State of the Campus address.
Enrollment is also breaking records across the entire IU System. The overall numbers at the eight IU campuses rose by 2.6 percent to a record 101,727 students, the first time this mark has broken 100,000. Credit hours taken also have increased system-wide by 3.3 percent to a record 1,183,076.5 credit hours.
