CSU College-Year Enrollment for Matriculants
The annual report on the enrollment of CSU matriculants in self-support special sessions is a response to the 2001/2002 Final Budget Report language regarding the transition to Year Round Operations: Item 6610-001-0001(14). The intent is to monitor the changes associated with the transition to year round operations across the system for at least five years, including the enrollment status of degree seekers in self-support special sessions.
This report identifies two types of degree seekers: 1) students matriculated into State supported programs, and 2) students matriculated into self-support, special session programs. The definitions for both types can be found in the CSU Enrollment Reporting System Operations Manual.
1. Six of the campuses are on a quarter system that includes a winter term, while the remaining campuses are on a semester system. CSU Stanislaus has an academic year consisting of two 13-week semesters and a 4-week winter term. College year enrollments are calculated as follows:
3. College Year headcount enrollment and full-time equivalent student (FTES) totals are often displayed to one decimal place in this report even though they are calculated to six decimal points in the software. Systemwide headcount enrollment and FTES results may therefore differ if campus totals are summed employing different rounding rules.
4. For purposes of this report, class level for undergraduates is determined by the value found in the Enrollment Reporting System data element Student Level Code.Campuses typically determine student level for undergraduates by the number of accumulated semester or quarter credit hours as follows:
5. A postbaccalaureate student holds an acceptable baccalaureate or its equivalent and has not been admitted to a graduate program. Postbaccalaureate students in this report are split into those seeking a basic teaching credential (single subject, multiple subject, or special education) and all other postbaccalaureate students.
6. A graduate student holds an acceptable baccalaureate or its equivalent and has been admitted to a graduate program. The distinction between graduate and postbaccalaureate students is based on the information reported in the Enrollment Reporting System data element Student Standing Code.
7. "Campus Totals" refer to enrollments for campuses, excluding supplemental programs operated by the CSU. "System Totals" include enrollments for Summer Arts, International Programs and CalStateTEACH. Beginning in college year 1998-99, Statewide Nursing is included in Dominguez Hills enrollment.
