Special Notes

Academic plan name changes  Some academic plans have had minor name changes over time. For those academic plans, all data are presented together. i.e., Computer Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering data are combined under the academic plan name of Computer Science and Engineering.

Cluster – Interdisciplinary minors have been placed in the most logical cluster at the time of publishing. These items are currently under review and may change clusters in the future.

Data changes in PeopleSoft – Retroactive changes to data in the PeopleSoft University Information System are reflected in this visualization (i.e., late conferral postings). This may result in some differences from previously distributed reports and data on awards conferred.

High School GPA  In previous years, the PeopleSoft data field "Cmp Rgpa" was used in reporting high school GPAs. A different field, "Hs Gpa", is now being used to report high school GPAs. Therefore the high school GPAs presented prior ro Program Review 2017 are not comparable to those presented currently.

JST conferrals  Retroactive changes to data in the Datatel University Information System are reflected in this visualization. This may result in some differences from data reported to IPEDS and other previously distributed reports and visualizations.

Students receiving more than one award – Each award is counted once. GPAs and units for students who earned more than one award will be reported separately under each awarded academic plan.

Race/Ethnicity – Race/ethnicity is self-reported. Students may change their race/ethnicity through HR self-service. This visualization represents the most recent race/ethnicity recorded in the university’s system of record, PeopleSoft. For consistency in multi-year reporting, any changes made to race/ethnicity are retroactively applied to all prior year data for each individual.

Race/Ethnicity reporting categories:

  • Black or African American - A person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa.
  • American Indian or Alaska Native - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America) who maintains cultural identification through tribal affiliation or community attachment.
  • Hispanic of any race - A person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race.
  • Asian - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian Subcontinent, including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam.
  • Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands.
  • Two or more races - Individuals who select two or more races (other than Hispanic).
  • White - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.
  • Race/ethnicity unknown - The category used to report individuals whose race and ethnicity are not known.
  • Nonresident alien - A person who is not a citizen or national of the United States and who is in this country on a visa or temporary basis and does not have the right to remain indefinitely.

Students receiving more than one award  Each award is counted once. GPAs and units for students who earned more than one award will be reported separately under each awarded academic plan.

Special Notes

Academic plan name changes - Some academic plans have had name changes over time. For those academic plans, all data are presented consistently over time, reflecting the most recent name. (i.e., Computer Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering data are combined under the current academic plan name of Computer Science and Engineering).

College/School, Cluster, and Department – Each class is assigned to a college/school, cluster, and department according to the current understanding of the academic structure. See note under “Department changes in PeopleSoft” for further information on data consistency.

Data changes in PeopleSoft - Retroactive changes to data in the PeopleSoft University Information System are reflected in this visualization. This may result in some differences from previously distributed visualizations and reports for data on class.

Department changes in PeopleSoft – In PeopleSoft, department names may change over time and subjects for some class sections may be assigned to different departments over time. This may happen as new departments are established (i.e. Bioengineering, Public Health Science, and Ethnic Studies), or as departments are split (i.e. Anthropology and Sociology). For departments and class subjects, all data are presented consistently over time, reflecting the most recent department name and the current understanding of subject to department assignment. This may result in differences from previously distributed class reports and visualizations.

Multiple class sections - There may be multiple sections of the same class offered during the academic year, resulting in fewer class titles appearing than number of class sections. The class is the same (i.e., Intro to Financial Accounting) but there are multiple sections offered differing by term, instructor, class meeting times, etc.

Team Taught Classes – Class sections that are taught by more than one instructor are counted only once.  In the Classes Taught by Instructor Type data visualization, counts of classes taught by multiple instructors are divided by the number of instructors. For example, a class taught by 2 instructors assigns ½ of the class to each instructor.

Prior to Fall 2011:

A student taking units as described above is considered full-time and equal to one FTE. Any excess units do not increase full-time headcount or FTE within a career, however, a student may be full-time in a career where their head is not counted. This may result in the sum of a full-time FTE to be greater than the sum of the full-time heads. A student taking fewer than the number of units noted above is considered part-time, with a headcount equal to one, and a FTE of less than one, based on units taken divided by FTE units.

Fall 2011 to Present:

The FTE is calculated as it was prior to Fall 2011 for undergraduates and those in the Executive MBA program for both full-time and part-time students. Other full-time students FTE is calculated using the table above but the full-time FTE is not capped as it was in prior years. The FTE for part-time students is calculated as it was prior to Fall 2011.

JST - Retroactive changes to data in the Datatel University Information System are reflected in this visualization. This may result in some differences from data reported to IPEDS and other previously distributed reports and visualizations.

Master’s & Certificates - Some students concurrently pursuing a Certificate and a Master’s degree were not set up in PeopleSoft to pursue two separate degrees and may appear with the Masters as a second major.

Race/Ethnicity - Race/ethnicity is self-reported. Students may change their race/ethnicity through HR self-service. This report represents the most recent race/ethnicity recorded in the university's system of record, PeopleSoft. For consistency in multi-year reporting, any changes made to race/ethnicity are retroactively applied to all prior year data for each individual.

Race/Ethnicity reporting categories:

  • Black or African American - A person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa.
  • American Indian or Alaska Native - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America) who maintains cultural identification through tribal affiliation or community attachment.

Definitions

Headcount/FTE

  • Full-time and Part-time Faculty (excluding Quarterly/Semester) Headcount: Total headcount of faculty
  • Full-time Faculty FTE: Full-time equivalent for faculty; this is equal to headcount except in cases of reduced appointments such as phased retirements or other reductions in workloads as approved by the Dean and Provost
  • Part-time Renewable and Fixed Term Faculty FTE: FTE represents the full-time equivalent at the time of hire (based on a full-time equivalent course load of six courses for Law and nine courses for all other schools/colleges)
  • Quarterly/Semester Headcount: Total headcount of faculty assigned to teach classes during the term
  • Quarterly/Semester Faculty FTE: Full-time equivalent for faculty. The FTE for quarterly part-time faculty is calculated based on actual classes taught. For the School of Law, a full-time teaching load is 2.57 classes for a term, while for all other schools/colleges a teaching full-time teaching load is 3.0 for a term. So every academic class is assigned an FTE of 0.389105058 for Law and 0.33333333 for all other schools/colleges. For independent study classes, the number of credit hours for the class is divided by 12 (for Law) or 15 (for all other schools/colleges). If a class is team-taught, the FTE is divided among the instructors.

Data Quality – In 2016-17 an audit from 2002-03 through 2016-17 was performed on instructor classifications in PeopleSoft, resulting in corrections to classifications of some instructors from faculty to academic staff. As a result, reports and data on faculty or classes taught by instructor type that were prepared by the Office of Institutional Research prior to 2016-17 will present different headcount totals. Those differences are presented in the table below.

Missing application data results in no stated country/state/territory and those applications are displayed on the Understanding tab.

Applications originating from a U.S. military address are also described in notes below the map.

Double degree students do not have linked applications and therefore have one application admission record rather than two for each degree.

The BS/MS programs in the School of Engineering do not have formal application processes for undergraduate students entering the graduate level, hence no application information is available for the MS degrees for students in this program.

Missing admissions records will result in enrollment counts that differ from those presented in other enrollment related reports.

Time to Degree is a Program Review report

Undergraduate Degrees by Cluster
  • To smooth annual variation and provide minimal counts per major, data are presented as an 8 year moving average for each cohort type (select cohort) by cluster.
  • Data include both summary statistics and counts (select view).
  • Time to degree is measured in academic terms, including summer.
  • 15 or 16 terms is equivalent to four years (i.e. the normal time required for a bachelor’s degree) and is classified as graduating on-time
  • Less than or equal to 14 terms is classified as graduating early.
  • Greater than or equal to 17 terms is classified as graduating late.
  • Summary statistics presented are: mean, median, and 5th through 95th percentile range.
  • The time to degree calculation is adjusted for a transfer cohort to be directly comparable to a first-time cohort (i.e. each transfer student’s record is adjusted to account for ALL time since entering tertiary education).
  • Graduating cohorts are segmented by single/multiple majors to ensure commensurate comparisons.
  • A grand total is presented to facilitate comparison across clusters. 
Undergraduate Degrees by Major within Cluster
