Out of state enrollment is up more than 7 percent at ISU for the 2012-2013 school year.

In what university officials attribute to a large incoming freshman class along with a increase in students returning to finish their education, Indiana State University says enrollment for the 2012-2013 school year is finally as high as it was in the early 1990s.

President Dan Bradley says ISU is ahead of its 2014 goal for it’s “Pathway to Success” program.

“It is exciting to see continued progress in meeting our enrollment goals both in terms of recruitment and retention,” Bradley says.

This year’s freshman class is at an all time high of 2,668 students. With a growing retention rate, there are now 12,114 undergraduate and graduate students at the Terre Haute campus.

Those numbers have not been higher since 1993, when enrollment was 12,181.
