Boise State University’s enrollment hit new highs in several areas.
Including the bottom line, with 24,154 students enrolled for fall semester.
“It is clear that Boise State remains a top choice for Idaho students as well as those from a growing portion of the West and beyond,” President Bob Kustra said in a news release Friday.
The fall enrollment includes records for first-year students and doctoral students alike.
But the record enrollment number also gets a significant boost from Idaho high schools. All told, 4,294 high school students enrolled in college-level classes through Boise State’s concurrent enrollment program.
Concurrent enrollment is a focal point across Idaho, as the state looks to boost its chronically low college graduation numbers. Under the state’s growing advanced opportunities program, high school students receive a $4,125 line of credit which they can use to enroll in college-level classes.
