University of Iowa announces spring enrollment figures

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Enrollment at the University of Iowa for the 1998 spring semester totals 26,045, a slight increase of 19 students from the spring of 1997, according to statistics issued by the UI Office of the Registrar.

The decrease in student population from the fall semester of the current academic year is 1,826 (6.6 percent), similar to the 6.8 percent decrease between the spring and fall semesters of the 1996-97 academic year.Spring enrollment is always less than that in the fall because of the number of students who graduate in December, said Registrar Jerald W. Dallam. The UI graduated 1,460 students in December 1997.

Following is a comparison of the 1997 and 1998 spring enrollments by college:
