UIS enrollment may top 5,000

University of Illinois Springfield officials are optimistic that the school’s enrollment will top 5,000 for the first time this fall.

Enrollment numbers won’t be released until Sept. 7, the 10th day of classes, because of class drops and adds that might be requested during that period, said university spokesman Derek Schnapp.

“But it is rare that we end up at a number below what we have going into the first day of classes, and we had more than 5,000 the first day,” Schnapp said. “We are cautiously optimistic it will stay there.”

The numbers were featured in a August 27, 2010, article in The State Journal-Register.
