Q – When are new fall enrollments posted?
A – Fall enrollments are posted each year in mid to late October
Q – How do you define Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) enrollment?
A – Each full-time student is counted as one FTE enrollment and each part-time student
is counted as a portion of one. This allows all students to be weighted in the same
way given that a part-time student takes fewer credits.
Q – Do these numbers match those on the University Common Data Set?
A – Yes with a few exceptions. The Common Data Set University Park includes School
of Law students enrolled at University Park and does not reflect students enrolled
at Hershey, Dickinson School of Law at Carlisle, the Pennsylvania College of Technology
or the World Campus.
Q – Are all students reflected in the official enrollments i.e., scheduled and dropped
A – Only registered students at the 6th week of the semester are reflected on the
Fact Book. This is the designated time frame and population determined as our “official”
enrollments that are reported externally including to state and federal agencies.
Q – How is residency determined for Fact Book purposes?
A – Residency on the Fact Book is determined by the home residence of the student.
It is not based in-state or out-of-state tuition.
