FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Officials at IPFW say admissions are up.

In fact, the 2016 fall semester set a five-year admissions record, according to Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne. 

Of the 4,516 students admitted, most of them were high school students. Only 2,500 students directly admitted from high school were recorded in 2013.

Admitted adult students also jumped up 62 percent this semester. Re-entry students were up 11 percent, while transfer students jumped 4 percent.

Officials say the value and diversity of offerings at IPFW are attractive to both high school and adult students.

“The comprehensive academic offerings available at IPFW, along with our mix of Purdue University and Indiana University programs, are very attractive to high school students,” said Carl Drummond, vice chancellor for academic affairs and enrollment management.

“Our gains in student populations such as adult learners and transfer students illustrate that the combination of value and quality makes IPFW the right choice for anyone who wants to pursue higher education in northeast Indiana,” Drummond said.
