Enrollment

For national comparison purposes, the enrollment headcount is based on IPEDS submissions. Some of our student population is excluded from IPEDS submissions due to reporting guidelines. Students who are not counted in IPEDS are students exclusively auditing classes, enrolled at the English Language Institute (ELI), China Campus, and Study Away.
