This demographic profile provides student headcount and FTE statistics by:
- ethnicity

- geographic origin

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.
An unduplicated University total is given in the first line of the table.

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 full-time load equivalent varies by school, term and program. See individual school profiles for details.
