TBR STUDENT ENROLLMENT PROJECTIONS FORM

INSTRUCTIONS and EXAMPLES


FORM SE   (Student Enrollment Projections)
  Don't alter contents of form.


Full-time Headcount = number of bodies
Part-time Headcount = number of bodies
Total Year Headcount = Full-time + Part-time
Full-time Equivalent (FTE) calculations

  • Factor UG full-time students enrolling in 15 credits (# of students x 15 =) or G students enrolling in 12 credits (# of students x 12)

  • Factor part-time students by the # of credits you think they will take (# of students x # of credits =)

  • Add full-time and part-time credits for a total

  • An undergraduate FTE is calculated by dividing the total number of undergraduate hours generated by 15

  • A graduate FTE is calculated by dividing the total number of graduate hours generated by 12

Unduplicated means just use counts for fall semester, not fall plus spring.


Graduates on the form can not be changed even though it is not appropriate for minors. Graduates are the total number of students graduating in the proposed degree, major, concentration, or certificate in the year designated. It would not be uncommon to have no graduates in the first 2 years of a new program.  If the proposal is for a minor, use the Graduates column to indicate when students will likely finish the minor coursework and so indicate in the next section.


Estimate the unduplicated headcount and full-time equated enrollment and the number of graduates for a complete program cycle.

Explain the basic assumptions used in estimating the size of the proposed program. Assumptions should be related to the evidence of need and to other supportive data.


In this section, you should speculate on both the positive and negative impact that your proposed academic action may have on your existing academic programs. For instance, the creation of a new major and/or concentration, etc. may very well impact your existing programs.
