  • This table provides official fall-term enrollment figures (snap shot of headcount major) for the current and preceding four academic years and undergraduate and graduate degrees conferred during each of those academic years. The "current" year means the academic year (F2013- S2014). FT--full time; PT--part time
  • Students designated “U4” have completed 85 or more credits. Not all of these students will have completed the program requirements for graduation, due to transfer status, the choice to complete one or more minors (or even a second major), having changed majors at some point in their academic careers, or other reasons. Hence the total number graduating each year will be significantly fewer that the total of students with U4 status in that year.
