Official Enrollment Statistics

The Official Enrollment Statistics Report presents enrollment data for fall, spring, and summer terms from 2001 forward. Enrollment data is available for new entering students and for all undergraduates, graduates, professional, and non-degree students by campus and college across different dimensions: academic level, registration status, class, credit load, full-time/part-time status, gender, race/ethnicity, age, home location, and tuition residency. The Student Enrollment Pivot report crosses a number of these dimensions for further analysis.

The historic enrollment (STIX) reports for terms fall 1999 - summer 2010 remain available. The May Session enrollment is reported separately.

Notes:

  • Enrollment by credit load is reported by credit range for the student at the start of the term.
  • Enrollment by gender data is self reported. If the student did not select a gender, unknown is reported.
  • Enrollment by age is reported in a range and corresponds to the student’s age at the start of the term.
  • Enrollment by tuition residency is the legal residency used for tuition purposes. This is not the same as home location, which is based on place of residence at time of admission. Tuition residency does not necessarily represent the amount of tuition actually paid.
