DEMOGRAPHIC PROFILE - FALL 2008

FINAL
Enrollment as of the end of the day November 4, 2008

Walter F. George School of Law

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

FTE and Full-Time/Part-Time status are calculated based on the following full-time load equivalents:

Spring Semester
12 credit hours
(10 credit hours for 3rd year students)

Summer Semester
6 credit hours

Fall Semester
12 credit hours

The Law School does not permit part-time enrollment. Some full-time students may fall below full-time status in a particular semester due to distribution of courses over a given year with permission from the Dean. Some transient and other special professional students may also fall below the full-time credit hour level.
