August 23, 2018 Writer: Brett Crandall
Official 2018 Summer Session enrollment numbers for both on-campus and online students at Brigham Young University-Idaho show students are taking advantage of summer course offerings, particularly online. A total of 3,272 students are currently enrolled in at least one course.
BYU-Idaho’s summer session is a six-week academic term between the spring and fall semesters. The intensive courses, condensed into a six-week curriculum, allow students to continue their academic progress year-round. Many students hope enrolling in summer session courses will allow them to earn their degree faster.
Statistics released for the 2018 Summer Session show that 343 students are taking classes on campus, 967 campus-based students are taking online courses, and another 239 students are fulfilling internships. In addition, 1,723 online students are also taking at least one course, an increase of 18.7 percent over last summer’s comparable online student enrollment of 1,452.
Continued growth in enrollment can be attributed, in large part, to BYU-Idaho’s unique educational emphasis. This includes: the teaching focus of its faculty, the opportunity to gather with other students who share common values, the University’s focus on real-world preparation, and the high-value educational experience offered. BYU-Idaho is student focused by design.
