Selecting a Measure

By selecting the "Select Measure" dropdown in the dashboard you will be able to select from multiple calculations for FTE. The full-time equivalent (FTE) of students is a single value providing a meaningful combination of full-time and part-time students. For example, if an institution has 10,000 (student) FTE it may have 8,000 full-time students and 4,000 half-time students. The four calculations provided in the dashboard are explained below.

  1. FTE - Basic = The number of full-time students plus the 1/3 the number of part-time students.
  2. FTE - CPE = The number of doctorate students plus total undergraduate credit hours divided by 15 plus total graduate credit hours divided by 12.
  3. FTE - IPEDS = The number of full-time students plus the number of undergraduate part-time students multiplied by 0.403543 plus the number of graduate part-time students multiplied by 0.361702.
  4. FTE - Moody's = The number of full-time students plus the number of undergraduate part-time hours divided by 12 plus the number of graduate part-time hours divided by 9.

College, Department, & Program

Enrollment & FTE are based on distinct counts of students per term. This means that double (or more) majors are only counted once and their college, department, & program are based on the students primary program (1st major).
