EXPLANATORY NOTES

1. This report is based on the Student Enrollment File (ERSS) of the Enrollment Reporting System.

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 across all terms that comprise the college year. 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 for campuses operating on the semester calendar, or summer, fall, winter, and spring quarters with a quarter calendar. The college year begins with the summer quarter and is followed by the fall, winter, and spring terms.

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:

  • 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.
