Enrollment statistics released for Winter Semester 2011 show Brigham Young University-Idaho continues to grow.
According to data from the BYU-Idaho Student Records and Registration Office, the number of full-time students increased by 5.1 percent from last Winter Semester, and total enrollment grew by 5.4 percent. Total enrollment now stands at 14,100 students compared to 13,375 one year ago. In addition, students are taking 13 credit hours on average. The increase comes as a result of an enrollment expansion plan the university began implementing Fall Semester 2010.
"BYU-Idaho's continued expansion shows the university's dedication to provide education to as many people as possible," said Rob Garrett, Enrollment Services managing director. "It is a blessing to see more and more students experience quality education in such a wholesome atmosphere."
This semester, the student body consists of 4,189 freshmen, 3,008 sophomores, 3,014 juniors and 3,795 seniors. There are 3,925 married students, comprising 28 percent of the student body. There are 6,798 male students (48 percent) and 7,302 female students (52 percent). The university has 430 international students, representing 62 countries.
