Official Headcount Summary of Enrollment
The University of Kansas' Office of Institutional Research and Planning creates frozen extracts of student data at the Lawrence (including Edwards) and Medical Center campuses on the first, 20th, and last day of classes for the fall and spring terms, and on the first and last day for the summer term. A snapshot of the unduplicated headcount of enrollment is created for each census point based on these extracts, and in particular, the 20th day of each fall semester serves as the official academic year headcount.
To determine which program or campus a student is counted in, a variety of factors are used, such as the program level and the campus location of the majority of the student's coursework. Medical residencies and post-residency fellowships at the Medical Center are counted based upon training location, either Kansas City or Wichita.
Each report shows the last five years of enrollment, both total counts within each school, and further enumerated by student classification. Demographic and other categorical data are also provided.
