Two of three Iowa regents universities see record fall enrollment
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State University and the University of Iowa are reporting record fall enrollment but the number of students at the University of North dropped slightly.
The state’s three public universities reported their fall enrollment Thursday and discussed the student numbers at a Board of Regents meeting in Iowa City.
Of the three schools, Iowa State had the largest enrollment, with 36,660 students. That’s a record for ISU, topping last year’s total of 36,001.
The University of Iowa reported a total enrollment of 33,334 students, up from 32,150 in 2015.
Enrollment was down a little at the University of Northern Iowa, which reported 11,905 students this fall compared to 11,981 last year.
