NOTE: data includes pandemic year 2020-2021

Discrepancies in weighted campus users between this field and PRE-5 are due to the numbers being derived from different years, one of which was a pandemic year. For PRE-5, we used data from AY 2019-2020, which was the last academic year where population data was unaffected by COVID pandemic. For this credit, we used data from our baseline (FY 2018-1019) and performance years (FY 2020-2021). Our performance year coincides with the COVID pandemic (and the closure of our campus), which explains the discrepancy in weighted campus users.
