Fall 2003 Enrollment Report

Table 1a

Headcount History by School, 1999-2003
Total Fall 2003 headcount enrollment is 5,477, an increase of 7 from Fall 2002. Increases in Medicine, Social Work, and the Dental School are offset by decreases in Law, Nursing, and Pharmacy.

Table 1b

FTES History by School, 1999-2003
Total Fall 2003 FTES enrollment is 4,994, an increase of 58 from Fall 2002 and the highest over the five year period. Increases in Pharmacy, Social Work, and Nursing are offset by decreases in Medicine and Law.

Table 2 

Headcount Change by Program
Enrollment increases occur in undergraduate Medical and Research Technology, graduate Medicine and Social Work, and Dental and Day Law first professional programs. Declines occur in undergraduate Nursing, graduate Nursing, and Evening Law. Enrollment in the new Entry Level Doctor of Physical Therapy program partially offsets the planned reduction in the related Masters program. Similarly, the phase-out of the Non-Traditional Pharmacy program is somewhat offset by growth in the Entry Level Pharmacy program.

Table 3

Projected vs. Actual Headcount by Program
Fall 2003 enrollment is only 1% greater than planned, but with considerable variation among programs.  Greater than anticipated enrollments in undergraduate Nursing, graduate Medicine, and Day Law are offset by shortfalls in graduate Nursing, Physical Therapy, and Evening Law enrollment.

Table 4

FTES Change by Program
Full-Time Equivalent Student (FTES) change by program generally parallels change in headcount enrollment, with a few exceptions. The increases in undergraduate Nursing and Entry Level Pharmacy FTES are attributable to greater student course loads.

Headcount by Gender
Women predominate in all but three degree programs: professional and post graduate Dentistry and Evening Law.  Overall, women comprise 72% of enrollment.
