Part B: Enrollment of Students By Age
Part B: Fall Enrollment by Age and Gender

Part B is mandatory this year. This part is required in odd-numbered years.

This distribution of students should include all students reported in Part A.

Enrollment by Age

Use institutional records to calculate student age.

Academic reporters: report student age as of the institution's official fall reporting date or as of October 15, 2015.

Program reporters: report student age as of August 1, 2015.

The totals by gender for each attendance status (full- or part-time) and student level (undergraduate or graduate) will be carried forward from the corresponding Part A screens. When the Part B and Part A totals do not agree, the "Age unknown/unreported" is calculated.

Note: If the Part B student count total is larger than the total carried forward from Part A (resulting in a negative value), a fatal error results. In this case, reexamine both the age data and comparable portion of Part A to identify the error and make appropriate corrections.
