UIS enrollment tops 5,000 for fourth year in row

Fall enrollment at the University of Illinois Springfield matched its second-highest total and topped 5,000 students for a fourth consecutive year.

The increase from 5,048 students in fall 2012 to 5,137 students this year — a 1.8 percent increase — comes as many other state universities see declining enrollment.

The University of Illinois will release enrollment figures for its Urbana-Champaign campus today.

“Growth is a high priority for the UIS campus, and we are very encouraged that more and more students are choosing the Springfield campus of the University of Illinois because of the high-quality educational experience they receive,” said UIS Chancellor Susan Koch.

The story was published in The State Journal-Register on Sept. 11, 2013.
