Headcount Student Enrollment

What is headcount enrollment?

 

Spring 2018 headcount enrollment is 6,687, an increase of 4.4 percent from spring 2017 enrollment of 6,408.  Increases in professional practice nursing, master’s level law, nursing and pharmacy, and Graduate School and medicine certificate program enrollments are partially offset by lower enrollments in Graduate School health sciences master’s and undergraduate medical and research technology programs.

The spring 2018 enrollment file also includes 13 intercampus (visiting) students, Level Code IC, not included in enrollment data reported for the University of Maryland, Baltimore.

Winter 2018 headcount enrollment was 113, which was 28 percent less than the winter 2017 term enrollment of 157. Enrollment consisted of coursework for students in the undergraduate medical and research technology and professional PharmD programs.

 

Fall 2017 enrollment was 6,703, an increase of 3.4 percent from fall 2016 enrollment of 6,482. Compared to the previous fall term, increases in undergraduate nursing, graduate law and pharmacy and professional nursing program enrollments were partially offset by lower enrollments in graduate medicine and health sciences programs.

The fall 2017 term included the first enrollments for several online programs: Certificates in Global Health Systems and Services, Integrative Health and Wellness, and Research Administration; and the Master of Science in Homeland Security and Crisis Management Law. The enrollment file also included 19 intercampus (visiting) students, Level Code IC, not included in enrollment data reported for the University of Maryland, Baltimore.

Summer 2017 headcount enrollment was 1,860, an increase of 9 percent from summer 2016 enrollment of 1,710. Decreased enrollments occured in the MS in Health Science program, the certificate in Aging and Applied Thanatology program, the Evening Law program, and the PhD programs in nursing and pharmacy. Enrollments increased substantially in the Doctor of Nursing Practice, the MS in Nursing program, the Master of Social Work program, and the MS and PhD programs in medicine.

Spring 2017 headcount enrollment was 6,408, an increase of 3 percent from spring 2016 enrollment of 6,226. Increases in undergraduate nursing; graduate health science, law, public health, and social work; and professional nursing program enrollments were partially offset by lower enrollments in nursing master's and professional law programs. Within the School of Nursing, the decrease in master's-level enrollments and increase in doctoral-level enrollments reflected the continued transition of most master's level specialties to the doctoral level.

The spring 2017 term included the first enrollments for the online Master of Science in Cybersecurity Law program. The enrollment file also included 12 intercampus (visiting) students, Level Code IC, not included in enrollment data reported for the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
