Table 1a

Headcount History by School, 2001-2005
Total Fall 2005 headcount enrollment is 5,510, a decrease of 92 from Fall 2004.  Slight decreases were seen in Medicine, Nursing, & Pharmacy, with the largest decrease in Social Work.  Much of this is offset by increases in the Dental and Law Schools.

Table 1b

FTES History by School, 2001-2005
Total Fall 2005 FTES enrollment is 5,234, an increase of 146 from Fall 2004 and the highest over the five year period.  Substantial increases in Dental and Medicine, as well as a slight increase in Law and Pharmacy overcame slight decreases in the Nursing and Social Work Schools.

Table 2 

Headcount Change by Program
Enrollment growth is concentrated in Graduate School and First Professional programs.  The declines in Undergraduate and Other Graduate programs, however, clearly offset the increases.  The largest numeric decrease was seen in the undergraduate Nursing & the Masters of Social Work programs.  The Masters in Physical Therapy program has now been completely phased out, although the new Masters in Public Health grows at an impressive rate from 3 to 10 students.

Table 3

Projected vs. Actual Headcount by Program
Fall 2005 enrollment is slightly smaller than projected, with a -2% deviation.  While many programs were close to the projections, some had larger deviations.  Evening Law, Physical Therapy - Transitional, Social Work (MSW), & Nursing (MS and PhD) all had enrollment significantly below their projections.  Day Law, Dental Hygiene, Pharmacy - Non-Traditional and Public Health all had significant percentage increases.  Overall, the projections were very accurate, with the majority of programs having only single digit deviations.

Table 4

FTES Change by Program
Full-Time Equivalent Students (FTES) change by program generally parallels change in headcount enrollment, with the exception of the Graduate School programs in Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy with large increases in FTES and smaller changes in headcount enrollment.
