Calculation of FTE students (using fall student headcounts)

The number of FTE students is calculated based on fall student headcounts as reported by the institution on the IPEDS Enrollment (EF) component (Part A). The fulltime equivalent (headcount) of the institution's parttime enrollment is estimated by multiplying the factors noted below times the parttime headcount. These are then added to the fulltime enrollment headcounts to obtain an FTE for all students enrolled in the fall. This formula is used to produce an FTE that is used annually in the Digest of Education Statistics.
