Counts by career and college are duplicated
Dual degree students are counted in every career level and college for which
they have a valid enrollment even if not registered in both enrollments for term

FTE is calculated as follows:
Full-Time Students - FTE=1.0
Part-Time Students - FTE=Credits Attempted/Full-Time Load Equivalent
The full-time load equivalent varies by school, term, and program.
See individual school profiles for details
