NOTES: (1) Student FTE figures are reported at the student level rather than course level.
(2) Faculty FTE includes part-time faculty and graduate teaching/research assistants.

(3) Fall 2008 methodology adjustment. a) Student FTE no longer includes graduate students. b) Faculty FTE includes part-time faculty but excludes graduate teaching/research assistants.

4) Fall 2009 methodology adjustment based on clarified IPEDS criteria:  ratio of full-time equivalent students (full-time plus 1/3 part time) to full-time equivalent instructional faculty (full time plus 1/3 part time).
