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. 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 is assumed to begin with the summer quarter.

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.

5. Full-time equivalent students (FTE) by term are derived by dividing total semester (quarter) student credit hours by 15, a workload for traditional students. Annual full-time equivalent students are derived by either dividing total semester student credit hours for the academic year by 30 or total quarter student credit hours by 45.

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. Regular student are those individuals who attempt 6.1 student credit units or more during a term. Limited students are those individuals who attempt six or fewer student credit. As a consequence of the relatively small workload being attempted, limited students are charged reduced student fees.

8. 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

9. A postbaccalaureate student holds an acceptable baccalaureate or its equivalent and has not been admitted in a graduate program.

10. A graduate student holds an acceptable baccalaureate or its equivalent and has been admitted to a graduate program. The distinction between graduate and postbaccalaureate students is based on an evaluation of Student Standing and Degree Objective Codes.

11. For purposes of this report, a student is considered to have continued from one term to another if he or she is enrolled at the same campus in consecutive terms. The level of the student is determined by the level in the initial enrollment period from which continuation is based.

12. 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 (representing the total number of student credit units in a full-time equivalent student).

13. "Campus Totals" refer to enrollments for campuses, excluding supplemental programs operated by the CSU and the Maritime Academy. "System Totals" include enrollments for Statewide Nursing, Summer Arts, International Programs, and Maritime Academy.
