CIU Family,

 We’re off and running on another great semester at CIU and I wanted give you all a short enrollment update for the beginning of the spring semester.

 CIU has..

  • 744 total undergraduate students (includes online), up 30% compared to a year ago.
  • 974 total graduate students (includes online), up 55% compared to a year ago.
  • 1,718 total CIU students at the start of the spring semester, up 42% compared to a year ago.

 Looking at just online students, CIU has...

856 total online students, including undergraduate and graduate, up 89% compared to a year ago!

 This is the result of a lot of hard work in in many areas including admissions, marketing, the registrar’s office, the financial aid office and others. I thank all of you for all that you do to bring students to CIU and to keep them here. But, most of all, this is the result of God working in hearts and lives. He gets all the glory!


Dr. Smith
