  1. As always, this is a duplicate count and will not match our unduplicated enrollment figures.
  2. This historical information should not be checked back to previous Databook publications because it represents a “snapshot” of data taken on 1/24/17 instead of typical  tenth day census information. 
  3. Readers will not see the first, second, third, etc. distinction in majors. If a student has declared and recorded major, it is reflected in the report.
  4. Majors are are alphabetically listed within the college/school.  Note that some majors appear in two different schools/colleges – such as Data Analytics.  Additionally, as we continue to firm up the workings of our new reporting tool, we recognize that a few majors are populating differently.  This is isolated to a few majors, including TEPD, MBA, MPA, and not indicative of an issue with all the data.
  5. The Excel format is read-only.

OIRA is continuing the transition to a new format for the Databook. OIRA is providing a new set of data for majors using a different methodology, which will allow for historical 5-year information in a single report.

Readers should note some important differences in this reporting format:

    • Arts & Sciences
    • ‌Business & Public Administration
    • Education
    • Journalism & Mass Communications
    • Pharmacy & Health Sciences
    • Law
