FINAL

College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences

This demographic profile provides student headcount and FTE statistics by:
- ethnicity,
- age,
- religious preference,
- geographic origin,
- and marital status.
May be duplicated counts.
Each valid program is counted; a student may have a valid matriculation at more than one level
and/or in more than one college.

KEY
FT = Full-Time Headcount
PT = Part-Time Headcount
N = Total Headcount
Hours = Hours Attempted
FTE = Full-Time Equivalent

FTE is calculated as follows:
Full-Time Students - FTE = 1.0
Part-Time Students - FTE = Hours Attempted/Full-Time Load Equivalent

The School of Pharmacy changed from a quarter system to a semester system in the summer of 1994.
FTE and Full-Time/Part-Time status are calculated based on the following full-time load equivalents:

Graduate Students
Quarter System:
9 credit hours for PHD students
10 credit hours for all other graduate students
Semester System:
6 credit hours regardless of semester or program

Professional Students (regardless of system or term)
12 credit hours
(10 credit hours for 4th year students in summer semesters only)
