Purdue seeing jump in summer school enrollment

(Continued)

Purdue's effort includes making $1.5 million more in financial aid available for summer school and beginning to offer residence hall contracts that allow students not to have to move for the summer.

Dooley said Purdue administrators have promised departments that the selected courses will continue even if their enrollments are low to start.

"We were very intentional about the courses we chose to support for the summer," Dooley said. "I'd say it's the classic case of the chicken and the egg. The departments would say, 'We can't offer the course because no one will take it,' and students would say, 'I'm not coming to summer school because you're not offering the course.' We thought this is one of the ways to break that deadlock."
