FTE Enrollment

FTE refers to Full-Time Equivalent - a measurement equal to one student enrolled full-time for one academic year. The FTE of student enrollment at the university is the sum of full-time enrollment plus the calculated equivalent of the part-time enrollment.

The University FTE Enrollment report uses the UW System definition of FTE, calculated as the sum of credits divided by 15, 12, or 7, depending on the student's program level (undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral). FTE enrollment should correspond with but never exceed enrollment headcount.
