Students walk through campus at IUPUI, one of the IU campuses that went against the university system's trend. Student enrollment at IUPUI went down 0.3 percent, but credit hours increased 0.2 percent.

A record number of students have enrolled in Indiana University this year, even as credit hours declined slightly.

IU says 102,067 students are enrolled in classes across its seven-campus system, up 87 students from the fall of 2011. IU East, IU Kokomo, IU Northwest and IU South Bend also saw record enrollments within their campuses.

“These figures show that we are continuing to provide an affordable, high-quality education that students want and value,” IU President Michael McRobbie said in a press release.

Total credit hours across the IU system declined 0.5 percent.
