Important Notes

The calculation of the percentage of course sections taught in person is made based on the instruction mode of the course section. For each student the number of course sections taught in-person (classroom instruction) or hybrid (part online part in-person) is divided by the total number of sections and then averaged for the distribution.

Year in school is shown here and is calculated as follows: Students in new admit types or who have only one enrolled prior term are considered 1st year students. Students who have 2 or 3 enrolled prior terms are considered 2nd year students. Students who have 4 or 5 enrolled prior terms are considered 3rd year students. Students who have 6 or 7 prior enrolled terms are fourth year students. All other students who have been enrolled longer than 7 terms are in their fifth or more year in school.
