WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue University says early figures are showing a sizeable jump in enrollment for summer classes.

Purdue officials say summer semester enrollment is running about 11 percent ahead of last year, including a 16 percent jump among undergraduate students.

Purdue associate vice provost Frank Dooley says the school’s message is that undergraduates without an internship or a job for the summer should consider getting ahead on their course work.

The Journal & Courier reports (http://on.jconline.com/1mh4de0 ) Purdue has made a three-year commitment to teach 250 courses over the summer that officials identified as being in high demand as a way of helping boost enrollment.

Purdue is also making $1.5 million more in financial aid available for summer school and is beginning to offer no-move residence hall contracts.
