The Class of 2013 is academically powerful, with the number of first-year students who received an Academic Honors Diploma showing an increase of 30.5 percent and 21st Century Scholars showing an increase of 30.5 percent among beginning students.
Across the state, entering students set marks for high school honors, SAT scores and other indicators of academic excellence. Enrollment of international students increased on every IU campus and grew 10 percent overall to 8,452 students.
“As our record number of students and credit hours clearly show, more students and their families than ever recognize the value of an Indiana University education,” said IU President Michael A. McRobbie. “The combination of high quality and affordability of Indiana University continues to be a strong draw for students, and the university continues to attract exceptional students from across Indiana, the nation and around the world.”
McRobbie also noted the vital role IU’s regional campuses play in providing an affordable, high-quality education to Hoosiers, including many nontraditional and first-generation college students.
“Our regional campuses are invaluable community resources that serve a broad spectrum of students. The campuses are increasingly a first choice for some of the best and brightest high school students in Indiana, as can be seen in the large gains in the number of students earning Indiana Academic Honors degrees from their high schools and those being named 21st Century Scholars by the state.”
