Date Calculation Notes:

This workbook shows the difference in days between an undergraduate student's admission decision date to their first (minimum) credit evaluation date

Population Notes:

This workbook includes new transfer students, not continuing students who transferred a summer course. Our logic calculated as follows:

-Including students where their transfer articulation term = application admit term

-Excluded students with Admission Type: RAD (Readmitted to Career), FYR (Freshman), RET (Re-entry)

-Excluded students whose Admission Program Reason is 'Madison Connection Program' (U14C)
