Fall 2001 Enrollment Report

Table 1

Headcount Enrollment by School - History
Total Fall 2001 headcount enrollment is 5,476, an increase of 139 or 2.6% over Fall 2000. This is the first rise in fall headcount enrollment since Fall 1996, when enrollment topped out at 6,066. Substantial increases in Law and Nursing are partially offset by a drop in Social Work enrollment. Even with this increase, UMB enrollment is still 500 students below 1997 levels.

Table 2

Full-Time Equivalent Enrollment by School - History
Full-Time equivalent (FTE) enrollment for Fall 2001 calculated on the basis of credit hours (except MD degree) increases 3.1% over Fall 2000. Although enrollment growth accounts for most of the rise in FTE students, Pharmacy credit hours increase in excess of enrollment, resulting in a 9.2% increase in FTE students. There is a slight decline in Dental School FTE students not attributable to enrollment.

Table 3

Headcount Enrollment by Degree
Overall undergraduate and first professional program enrollments increase substantially. The decrease in Social Work MSW students causes a 9.0% decline in graduate enrollment outside of the Graduate School. Enrollment in the new Doctor of Physical Therapy program offsets the reduction in the related Masters program.

Table 4

Full-Time Equivalent Enrollment by Level
Due to fluctuations in credit hour loads and enrollment changes, programs with significant increases in FTE students include Nursing BSN, Genetic Counseling, Law, Pharmacy PhD, and Pharmacy PharmD. The apparent drop in Graduate School FTE enrollment in Dental programs is due to a change in the way credit hours for students not enrolled in the Dental School are reported.

Table 5

Enrollment by Gender
Women predominate in every degree program, except for the Dental School DDS, where men make up 56% of enrollment. Overall, women constitute 70.8% of enrollment for Fall 2001, a slight increase from the 69.1% share the previous year.

Table 6

Enrollment by Attendance Status
Full-time students account for 79% of headcount enrollment. Most of the part-time students are concentrated in Graduate School (Nursing, Social Work, and Dental), Nursing BSN, and Social Work MSW programs. For Fall 2001, the entire enrollments in the Doctor of Physical Therapy and Non-Traditional PharmD programs are considered part-time.

Table 7

Enrollment by Attendance Status - History
