Fall 2009 enrollment on Indiana Wesleyan University’s Marion campus is up 1.4 percent from a year ago. Enrollment in Marion has increased 22.3 percent over the last five years. There are 3,245 students enrolled this fall, in what once comprised the College of Arts and Sciences as it was organized in past years, compared to 3,201 in 2008. This will be the final time we will compare these numbers in this manner. Also noteworthy is the number of commuter students on the Marion campus is the largest ever, generally indicates a higher number of local students.
IWU’s overall 2009 enrollment has decreased by 97 students. Total enrollment this year stands at 15,345, compared to 15,442 a year ago.
Over the past five years, however, IWU’s overall enrollment has grown by 34.5 percent.
Because of IWU’s recently completed academic restructuring, statistical comparisons or final enrollment number breakdowns for the various academic divisions of the University need to be coordinated with Associate Provost, Dr. Don Sprowl. Please contact Dr. Sprowl for the specific information.
As you know, the 2008 academic structure consisted of three colleges. The 2009 academic structure consists of two colleges – the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Adult and Professional Studies, the Graduate School, the School of Nursing as well as the newly formed Seminary.
