According to both Chancellor J. Michael Mullen of the Higher Education Policy Commission and Chancellor James L. Skidmore of the Council for Community and Technical College Education, the upward trend is especially noteworthy given the declining number of high school graduates. The Chan- cellors both agree that traditional and nontraditional students are recognizing the importance of postsecondary education in today's economy. "[he report looks at two types of enrollment, credit headcount and full-time equivalent (FTE). Credit headcount is the number of students attending each public college and university, whether they are full-time or part-time. FTE is the number of full-time students, plus the full-time equivalent of part-time students attending each institution. Typically, FTE enrollment is less than headcount enrollment. Pursuant to SB 448, passed by the Legislature in 2004, institutions are grouped on the chart according to their affiliation with the Higher Education Policy Commission or the Council for Community and Technical College Education. An expanded enrollment report will be released in the next several weeks.
