REXBURG, Idaho - Official fall enrollment totals for both on-campus and online students at Brigham Young University-Idaho show continued upward growth.
Statistics released for Fall Semester 2016 show a total campus enrollment of 17,980 students, an increase of 2.4 percent over last fall's campus enrollment of 17,562. This semester the campus student body consists of 8,436 male students and 9,544 female students, (46.9 percent and 53.1 percent respectively). The number of married students is 4,101, comprising 22.8 percent of the total campus student population. On-campus students who have served full-time missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints number 9,183 (51.1 percent).
Enrollment in BYU-Idaho's online courses and degree programs is also growing rapidly, with the university continuing to serve more students off campus than on campus. The number of online students, including Pathway, for Fall Semester 2016 is 26,864, an increase of 13.4 percent over last fall's comparable online student enrollment of 23,691.
Accompanying this growth is a continued focus on the quality of the student experience. BYU-Idaho prepares students for leadership in their homes, the Church, and their communities. With a teaching-focused faculty, small classrooms, and a student-centered approach to learning, the university provides a high quality educational experience. The Learning Model, leadership activities, and the university-wide internship program allow students to be academically engaged as they develop natural leadership abilities. This translates into ever-increasing student success as employers and graduate programs across the country realize the value of a BYU-Idaho education.
