The second year of a 25 percent tuition discount still hasn't boosted summer semester enrollment at Indiana University's main campus.

School officials say the Bloomington campus has essentially the same number of students as last summer, when enrollment rose by about 1 percent in the discount's first year.

University spokesman Mark Land tells The Herald-Times that school leaders hoped for a bigger summer enrollment jump but know that price isn't the only factor that students consider. He says some students get summer internships and some classes aren't available.

IU's regional campuses had varied changes in summer enrollment. The Kokomo campus saw a nearly 13 increase and Richmond campus is up 9 percent. The South Bend campus had a 9 percent drop and Gary is down 7 percent.
