University of Iowa announces spring enrollment figures

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Enrollment at the University of Iowa for the 1997 spring semester totals 26,026, an increase of 248 students from the spring of 1996, according to a report issued by the UI Office of the Registrar. Compared to last spring, enrollment is up 273 students in the College of Liberal Arts.

The decrease in student population from the fall semester of the current academic year is 1,895 (6.8 percent), similar to the 6.6 percent decrease between the spring and fall semesters of the 1995-96 academic year.

Spring enrollment is always less than that in the fall because of the number of students who graduate in December, said UI Registrar Jerald W. Dallam. The UI graduated about 1,500 students in December 1996.

Following is a comparison of spring and fall enrollments by college:
