Another measure of enrollment for the universities is full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment. FTE enrollment is calculated based on the number of credits students are taking that semester. An FTE enrollment that is close to headcount enrollment implies that more students are attending on a full-time basis (15.5) credit hours for undergraduates and 9 credit hours for graduate students). FTE enrollments for Spring 2001 (56,221) increased by 1.1% from Spring 2000 enrollments (55,603). The increase of 618 FTE by institution is as follows: at SUI, FTE enrollments decreased by 311 (-1.4%); at ISU, FTE enrollments increased by 739 (+3.4%); and at UNI, FTE enrollments increased by 190 (+1.8%). Between Fall 2000 and Spring 2001, the Regent universities experienced a decrease of 4,254 students (-6.2%) in headcount enrollment, from 68,930 to 64,676. The decrease by institution is as follows: 1,700 students (-6.0%) at SUI; 1,757 students (-6.5%) at ISU; and 797 students (-5.8%) at UNI. The decrease in headcount enrollment between fall and spring is typically due to the fact that more students graduate at the end of the fall semester or do not register for the subsequent semester than enter the universities at mid year. Historically, spring enrollment is approximately 93% of the fall enrollment with some institutional variances.
