When we talk about enrollment numbers we use two terms - "head count" and "full-time equivalent, or FTE."

Head count is the total number of students who enrolled in a year, whether full or part-time.

FTE is based on the total number of credits taken in a semester.

And example - if two students each enroll part time, taking half the credits needed, the head count number would be two. But, the FTE number would be one (credits added together & then divided by the number of students).

Here are the head count/FTE numbers asked for The College of St. Scholastica.

1990 (Fall semester)       1953          1706.66
2000 (Fall semester)       2062          1837.06
2010 (Fall semester)       3898       3597.2
