REXBURG, Idaho—Official winter semester enrollment totals for both on-campus and online students at Brigham Young University-Idaho show continued growth.
Statistics released for the Winter 2019 Semester show a total campus enrollment of 19,235 students, an increase of 2.9 percent over last winter’s campus enrollment of 18,689. In addition to this number, 4,463 campus-based students are taking online courses or fulfilling internships away from campus. Online courses have allowed for enrollment growth without students having to be on campus.
This semester the campus student body consists of 10,137 male students and 9,098 female students, (53 percent and 47 percent respectively). The total number of married students is 4,995, comprising 26% percent of the total campus student population.
Enrollment in BYU-Idaho’s online courses also continues to grow rapidly. The number of online students for Winter 2019 is 13,019, an increase of 13.1 percent over last winter’s comparable online student enrollment of 11,513.
Continued growth in enrollment can be attributed, in large part, to BYU-Idaho’s unique educational emphasis. This
