About the Data

Enrollment data in this visualization reflects the end of the previous day listed next to the enrollment update date in the report heading.

Data are available for the current semester, one immediate past semester, and any future semesters for which enrollment has begun.

Enrollment data reflect the total enrollment (all student levels combined) in the course section.

Enrollment data are only for group instruction courses (not independent study or field courses) and only reflect the primary section of the course (enrollments in secondary sections like discussions and labs are not shown).

Enrollment data reflect the total enrollment regardless of curricular subject crosslistings. Users need to know only one of the curricular subjects under which the course of interest is listed to get enrollments. For example, Botany 151, Biology 151, and Zoology 151 are all the same course. Enrollments for each of these selections will be the same.

Courses are shown only if they have enrollments of 10 or more students.
