College Year Headcount and Full-Time Equivalent Student (FTES) Enrollment Reports

College Year Headcount and Full-Time Equivalent Student (FTES) Enrollment Reports

The College Year Enrollment reports provide the university community with the official census-date state-supported headcount and rebenched full-time equivalent student (FTES) enrollment trends. These tables contain enrollment figures at the university-wide level, as well as disaggregated at the college, department, and program levels to display how the enrollments - particularly the FTES enrollments - are distributed and are intended for campus planning, for determining campus budget allocations, and for state university fee revenue projections at the CSU system-level. The university-wide enrollment totals are consistent with the CSU Chancellor's Office, Division of Analytic Studies Statistical Reports available at http://calstate.edu/as/stats.shtml.

Explanatory Notes:

1. Data are based on the Student Enrollment File (ERSS) of the Chancellor's Office Enrollment Reporting System, Division of Analytic Studies.

2. Census date is the close of the fourth week of instruction. Enrollments are in terms of the net number of students actively enrolled on the census date.

3. Academic year includes fall, winter (if applicable), and spring semesters. The college year begins with the summer term which is followed by the fall, winter (if applicable), and spring terms.

4. Full-time equivalent (FTE) is a measurement of enrollment derived by dividing total student credit hours for a term by 12 for graduate students (Master's and Ed.D. degree-seeking students) and by 15 for all other students. These are referred to as rebenched FTES; re-benching of graduate FTES started in 2006/07.

5. Definitions of term FTE in the 4-1-4 system at CSU Stanislaus do not conform to system-wide definitions. Inclusion of the special winter term, however, adjusts FTE to system-wide comparability and uniformity of annual FTE. See tables for FTE calculation. (CSU Stanislaus became a semester campus in 2010/11.)

6. College year headcount enrollment and FTES totals are displayed to one decimal place in these tables even though they are calculated to six decimal points in the software. Headcount enrollment and FTES figures in other tables and reports may differ due to rounding.

7. Campus enrollments are unduplicated; no student is counted more than once. If a student is concurrently enrolled in a master's degree program and credential program, that student is counted only in the master's degree program. If a student is concurrently enrolled in a second bachelor's degree program and a credential program, they are only counted as a credential student. Double-majors are counted only once in their first major.

8. Nursing is the only impacted undergraduate degree program at CSU Stanislaus. Nursing totals include Pre-Nursing students; pre-nursing students have stated a bachelor's degree in Nursing as their major but these students are not formally admitted in the program as of the term census date.
