Enrollment: A duplicate count of students enrolled (“seats occupied”) in all course section offerings (credit or non-credit) on the official census dates each term. The same student is counted in each section of official enrollment: e.g., a student enrolled in 3 class sections is counted as 3 enrollees. Not to be confused with unduplicated headcount, which only counts each student once.
Headcount: An unduplicated count of unique individuals who are officially enrolled at UAA in credit courses on the official semester/term census dates. It is a sum count of unique student identifiers during the reporting period, regardless of when the student enrolled. Note: headcount is unduplicated at the campus level but duplicated at the university level because students taking courses at more than one campus are duplicate-counted at the higher level.
Student Credit Hours: Represents the students being served in a particular course section. In general, SCH = course section credits * course section enrollment. (10 students in a 5-credit course section = 50 SCH). SCH reports do not include auditors or non-credit courses. Follow glossary link below for a more detailed definition.
