NOTE:

1Ratios were calculated by dividing FTE students by FTE faculty.  FTE students is based on credit hours produced by the primary department assignment of the instructor.  FTE faculty counts each full-time faculty member by their primary department assignment, including department heads, as one FTE irrespective of teaching load.  The FTE value of courses taught by part-time faculty is added to the full-time faculty count.  Beginning in Fall 1996, all graduate student positions (GTA's, GA's, SA's and RA's) were counted as 0.25 FTE.  The change in counting graduate assistants resulted in a lower overall ratio for Fall 1996.

1994-95 data for the former Geology & Geography Department has been recalculated into the Geology & Environmental Studies Department and the Center for Geographic Information Science.

Beginning in Fall 1995, four education programs were combined into the School of Education.

The College of Business was restructured around its programs beginning Fall 1997.   Data was analyzed into the old department structure to calculate the 1997-98 ratios.  This same analysis could not be made in Fall 1998.
