May be duplicated counts.
Each valid program is counted; a student may have a valid matriculation at more than one level

A table with summary information for the school is followed by tables for each of the items listed above by location and career level (where applicable for school and term).

KEY
FT = Full-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 for all semester terms, fall, spring and summer:
Undergraduate Students
12 credit hours
