BYU-Idaho plans to expand enrollment

In order to fulfill its mission to serve more students, Brigham Young University-Idaho is increasing its full-time student equivalency enrollment cap from 11,600 to 12,500 per semester beginning this fall. This change comes as the first phase in an enrollment expansion plan the university announced last year. The plan is projected to raise enrollment to 15,000 per semester by 2015.

"The enrollment expansion plan is one of many tools we are utilizing to provide a higher quality learning experience to more people," said Henry Eyring, advancement vice president. "We are excited about the progress BYU-Idaho has made in serving more students and we are grateful to the Board of Trustees for its great investment in helping us to achieve that mission."

BYU-Idaho's enrollment influx is supported by innovations in scheduling, calendaring and online education, which allow the university to serve more people without increasing the operating cost per student.
