Source Data

The data presented in these dashboards are referred to as the Source Data. It is referred to as the Source Data because it presents the enrollment statuses of a group of undergraduate students for a given fall semester compared to where they were in the previous fall semester.

It helps answer the question:

For students in a given fall semester, in a given college, department, and plan, how did their enrollment statuses change compared to the previous year?

The six enrollment statuses (or Sources) that students might hold compared to the previous year include:

  • From Same Plan
  • From Same Department, Different Plan
  • From Same College, Different Department
  • From Different College
  • Returned to University
  • New to University

Students with multiple majors in different departments will show up in the different department counts.

Department, college, and university totals are unduplicated with order of preference for students with multiple statuses at that level given to the higher Sources on the list above. In a similar fashion, in the rare case when a student ends up with multiple Sources from one Fall to the next, the student is classified according to the highest Source.

Students with multiple majors in different departments will show up in the different department counts. College and university totals are unduplicated though with order of preference for students with multiple statuses given to the higher Sources on the list above.

The data represents 10th Day snapshots for each given fall semester. This includes the administrative organizational structure that was in place for each given fall semester so students with plans that are no longer offered are represented accurately. If interested, you can create the current administrative organizational structure for your area by using the multi-select options under the Plan and Department selectors.

The user is advised to consider the varied structure and composition of departments (the number of programs they have, whether they have limited enrollment or competitive admission, etc.) when reviewing this data to avoid making inappropriate comparisons.

For students in a given fall semester, in a given college, department, and plan, how did their enrollment statuses change compared to the previous year?


Enrollment Statuses by Year

 

DEPARTMENT-LEVEL ENROLLMENT STATUSES BY COLLEGE


For students whose enrollment status changed, what college did they go to?



For students whose enrollment status changed, which college, department, and plan did they come from?



For those whose enrollment status was “Returned to University,” what was their last semester attended?
