U of I System reports record on-campus enrollment

Posted on 09/08/2016

The University of Illinois System enrolled a record 77,073 on-campus students at its three universities this fall, and total enrollment is expected to top a record 81,000 students when all online and off-campus students are counted later this year, according to enrollment statistics released Thursday.

President Tim Killeen outlined the System’s second straight year of record enrollment during the first of a series of reports to the Board of Trustees on progress toward goals in a new Strategic Framework approved earlier this year that sets the U of I System’s vision for the future.

Killeen said total on-campus enrollment increased 1.2 percent from last fall’s record 76,166 students System-wide, based on enrollment as of last Friday, the 10th day of classes. The 10-day figures are the traditional benchmark for enrollment data among U.S. colleges and universities.
