Notes for Undergraduate Programs
1. Undergraduate programs in engineering (chemical, computer, and mechanical) and computer science are accredited by ABET.
2. Beginning Fall 2015, freshmen engineering and computer science enroll as “pre-” engineering (chemical, computer, and mechanical) and pre-computer science programs. Students enter respective engineering and computer science programs upon completion of gateway requirements. Enrollments presented on this chart include “pre-” engineering and computer science plans.
3. Enrollment charts shared on this chart do not include undeclared engineering students because engineering-undeclared is not a degree-granting program.

  • Enrollment data are from Fall semester headcount enrollments (distinct number of students) for primary plan only (double majors are not counted in their second major). Enrollment data in (parenthesis) represent student term headcount trends by all plans–graduate and undergraduate.  All enrollment data as of begin term census or “Day 10” for each respective year. Note: Data is reported for all programs (plans) and information may not match previous reports because of cleanup efforts when converting legacy data into the data warehouse.
  • Graduation data include total for academic year Degrees data for August, December and May graduates. For example, AY17 degrees were awarded in August 2016, December 2016 and May 2017.
  • TBD” = Enrolled and Graduated data are not posted yet.
  • “*” = Data not available for programs until approved for enrollment.

Notes for Graduate Programs
1. M.P.S. = Master’s of Professional Studies
2. Environmental engineering enrollments and degrees for 2013 were originally posted to civil engineering (emphasis in environmental and water resources engineering)
