University of Iowa announces spring enrollment figures

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Enrollment at the University of Iowa for the 1999 spring semester totals 26,875, an increase of 830 students from the spring of 1998, according to the UI Office of the Registrar.

The decrease in student population from the fall semester of the current academic year is 1,830 (6.3 percent), similar to the 6.6 percent decrease between the spring and fall semesters of the 1997-98 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 1,269 students in December 1998.

Following is a comparison of the 1998 and 1999 spring enrollments by college:
