Officials say 4,500 applicants have already been accepted for this fall.
That's up more than 7% from this time last year.
University officials credit the jump to getting more people to visit the campus.
VU hosted more than 3,000 students for visits so far this year.
VU has campuses in Vincennes, Jasper, and Indianapolis.
