Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) Enrollment Methodology
Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) Enrollment for a school for a semester is calculated by TICUA in the following manner:
Total FTE Enrollment = Undergraduate FTE + Graduate FTE + First Professional FTE
Undergraduate FTE = Total Undergraduate Student Credit Hours / 15
Graduate FTE = Total Graduate Student Credit Hours / 12
First-Professional FTE = Total First-Professional Student Credit Hours / 12
This method was chosen to agree with past TICUA surveys and records and due to the method used by IPEDS to calculate FTE enrollment.
