Northern Star Staff

Numbers for the total student enrollment for the 2012 fall semester will be released Wednesday.

The ten day count for student enrollment is expected to be completed Monday and certainly by Tuesday, said Paul Palian, director of media and public relations, in an email. The numbers will be double-checked and released Wednesday after the raw data is analyzed.

The information will be available for public view on that day at NIU Today, but some analysis may not be available until later in the week, Palian said. The university is planning to make an announcement about the numbers on that day, as well.

Institutional Research puts together a data book containing the historical perspective of the numbers each year, Palian said. The most recent data book was compiled in July 2012 and contains data from 2011.

According to the 2012 Institutional Research Data Book, the official ten day count for student enrollment for the 2011 fall semester was 22,990 and for the 2010 fall semester 23,850.
