Note from our director of Institutional Effectiveness Office:
"Our FTE is always higher than our headcount. When I first started here, I thought that was odd. It turns out that we have a significant number of students taking OVER a full-time load, especially our Crane [School of Music] students. This makes our FTE higher. Additionally, only about 5% of our students are part-time so that is not a significant part of our student body."
