Significant tuition discounts, together with efforts to encourage timely degree completion and a wide variety of classes offered, led to record-breaking summer enrollment at Indiana University Kokomo. Chancellor Michael Harris said faculty and staff work hard to emphasize the value of year-round college attendance, as they encourage students to earn their degrees in four years.

He also credits President Michael A. McRobbie’s 25 percent summer tuition discount with driving enrollment. “We are delighted that our strategic approach to summer enrollment resulted in exceptional outcomes,” Harris said. “President McRobbie’s initiative of reducing tuition was key to our success. In addition, it was our intentional selection of the mix of courses we offered, the time and days they were offered, our enrollment growth, new programs, and marketing efforts.” With the discount, IU Kokomo students who took a full academic load during the summer sessions saved about $700.
