Fall 2002 Enrollment Report

Table 1

Headcount History by School, 1998-2002
Total Fall 2002 headcount enrollment is 5,470, a decrease of 6 from Fall 2001.  Increases in Nursing, Medicine and Pharmacy are offset by decreases in Law and the Graduate School.

Table 2

Headcount Change by Program
Enrollment increases occur only in undergraduate Nursing, graduate Physical Therapy, and Medicine and Pharmacy first professional programs. Significant declines occur in undergraduate Medical and Research Technology, Graduate School Nursing, and Law. Enrollment in the new Entry Level and Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy programs offset the planned reduction in the related Masters program.

Table 3

Projected vs. Actual Headcount by Program
Fall 2002 enrollment is nearly 2% greater than planned, but with considerable variation among programs.  Greater than anticipated enrollments in undergraduate Nursing, Physical Therapy, Day Law, and Non-Traditional Pharmacy more than offset shortfalls in Graduate School and Evening Law enrollment.

Table 4

FTES Change by Program
Full-Time Equivalent Student (FTES) change by program generally parallels change in headcount enrollment. The increase in Social Work PhD FTES is attributable to greater student course loads, as headcount enrollment in that program is unchanged.

Table 5

Headcount by Gender
Women predominate in all but three degree programs: Pharmacy PhD, Dental School DDS, and Evening Law JD.  Overall, women comprise 72% of enrollment, a slight increase from the 71% share the previous year.

Table 6

Headcount by Attendance Status
Full-time students account for 77% of headcount enrollment. Most part-time students are concentrated in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs and the Master of Social Work program.
