1. This report is based on the Student Enrollment File (ERSS) of the Enrollment
2. The census date for this report is the close of the third week of instruction
for campuses on a quarter system and the fourth week of instruction for
campuses on a semester system. Enrollments are in terms of the net number of
students actively enrolled on the census date.
3. The college year includes fall and spring semesters or summer, fall, winter,
and spring quarters. The college year is assumed to begin with the summer
4. Six of the campuses are on a quarter system (four as year-round), while the
remainder are on a semester system. CSU Stanislaus has adopted the "4-1-4"
academic calendar consisting of two 13-week semesters and a month-long winter
term. College year enrollments are calculated as follows:
5. Full-time equivalent students (FTE) by term are derived by dividing total
semester (quarter) student credit hours by 15, a theoretical "normal"
workload. Annual full-time equivalent students are derived by dividing
total semester student credit hours for the college year by 30, total quarter
student credit hours by 45.
- Semester and three-quarter calendar campuses: average of term enrollments.
- Year-round (four-quarter) campuses: average of fall, winter, and spring
enrollments plus one third of summer enrollment.
- Stanislaus (4-1-4 calendar): average enrollments are calculated by
weighting terms by 13, 4, and 13.
6. Definitions of term FTE in the 4-1-4 system at Stanislaus do not conform to
systemwide definitions. The inclusion of the special winter term, however,
adjusts FTE to systemwide comparability and uniformity of annual FTE.
7. Enrollment type is based on the number of semester or quarter credit hours for
which a student was enrolled on the census date, as follows:
8. Limited students are those individuals who attempt six or fewer student credit
units during a term. As a consequence of the relatively small workload being
attempted, such students are charged reduced student fees.
- Part-time student--fewer than 12 semester or quarter units.
- Full-time student--12 or more semester or quarter units.
9. Class level for undergraduate students is determined by the number of
accumulated semester or quarter credit hours as follows:
Class Level Semester Hours Quarter Hours
Freshman fewer than 30 fewer than 45
Sophomore 30 to fewer than 60 45 to fewer than 90
Junior 60 to fewer than 90 90 to fewer than 135
Senior 90 or more 135 or more
10.A postbaccalaureate student holds an acceptable baccalaureate or its
equivalent and has not been enrolled in a graduate program.
11.A graduate student holds an acceptable baccalaureate or its equivalent and has
been enrolled in a graduate program. The distinction between graduate and
postbaccalaureate students is based on evaluation of Student Standing Code and
Degree Objective Code.
12.For purposes of this report, a student is considered to have continued into a
subsequent term if he or she is enrolled at the same campus in that term. The
level of the student is determined by the level in the initial enrollment
period from which continuation is to be determined.
13.Student credit units can be characterized by the level of the course (lower
division, upper division, or graduate division) which is being attempted.
Annual FTE by course level is calculated by determining the student credit
units being attempted at each level of course and dividing the result by 30
