Percentage totals in some tables will not sum to 100 due to
rounding. For the same reason, values in some columns or rows
may not total precisely to match the printed sum values.
The most current data are reported to the extent possible.
Because of timing differences in the availability of data,
the reported times vary. For example the budget and expenditure
information reported are based on Fiscal Year data that for
2003-2004 is July 1, 2003, through June 30, 2004. The Academic
Year consists of the summer, fall, and spring terms, e.g.,
the 2003-04 Academic Year includes the summer session 2003,
the fall semester 2003-04, and the spring semester 2003-04.
The fall semester student and teaching activity information
used for official reporting purposes is based on a "snapshot" of
the data on a specific day, which is normally at the beginning
of the second week of classes. Similarly, a "snapshot" file
(the Workforce File) is used to prepare the faculty and staff
Student Credit Hours on the Fast
Facts page are reported based on the Summer, Fall,
and Spring official enrollment reports from the Office of
Extramural awards include all contracts and grants that were

Functional Area page were recast to
include Statewide Technology. The Student Fees Budget on the Budget
By Functional Area page were changed in 2002-03 to be reported
as gross student fees with fee remissions added to the expenditure
side of the budget. Prior to 2002-03, fee remissions were deducted
from total student fees and reported as net student fees.
On the Faculty and Staff Headcount pages pertaining to race/ethnicity,
the international staff are included within the race/ethnicity
categories. On the Student Headcount pages pertaining to race/ethnicity,
the international students are counted and reported separately
from the race/ethnicity categories.

data are available or the methodology for calculating data
