REXBURG, Idaho ­­­- Official spring enrollment totals for both on-campus and online students at Brigham Young University-Idaho show continued upward growth.

Statistics released for Spring Semester 2016 show a total campus enrollment of 14,694 students, an increase of 6.9 percent over last spring's campus enrollment of 13,742. This semester the campus student body consists of 7,283 male students and 7,411 female students, (49.6 percent and 50.4 percent respectively). The number of married students is 3,598, comprising 24.5 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 8,295 (56.5 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 Spring Semester 2016 is 20,711, an increase of 28.1 percent over last spring's online student enrollment of 16,171.

Accompanying this growth is a continued focus on the quality of the student experience. BYU-Idaho prepares students for leadership in the home, the workplace, and the Church. 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.
