This report provides answers to questions concerning enrollment data in any quarter since AY2008-09 and provides trends over that time. Prior to their integration into Power BI, enrolled student term census data were primarily used as the basis for Institutional Research official reporting, including the Fall Fact Files. These data are the official 10th day census depiction of each term’s enrollment, registration, and credits generated by students. Combined with school/program/major/minor/specialization as well as demographic information, these data provide an overview of how enrollment and registration patterns change over time and across different student populations.
This report also facilitates examination of new student trends (including distinctions between freshman- vs. transfer-entering new undergraduates) at any academic level, as well as credit generation activities of students by major vs. by the department offering courses (for service departments).
The next version of this report will include ARU’s (academic reporting units) that facilitate harmonization of program movement between departments and colleges over the last eleven academic years.

• On the Course Summary and Course Trends view, users can select the students’ major / program. This option should will allow users to see total registrations, credits attempted, and credits attempted by major / program.
Data Quality Improvements
• Resolved issue with missing school, department and major / program information.
• Resolved issue where major / program assigned to the incorrect academic level.
• Resolved issue where full-time status was blank.
• Made minor requested revisions to department and major program names.
New Data Elements Available
• New Major / Program: This field, available on the Total Students Summary and Total Summary Trends pages identifies new to the university major / programs. New major / programs are as any major / program starting in the last five academic years (between the 2014-2015 and 2018-2019 academic years. Institutional Research is working with the schools and colleges to improve the accuracy of these lists.
• New report page for Full Time Equivalence Trend
• New report page for Proportion of Full Time Students
• Additional slicers (such as Demographics) on the Trend pages
• New report page for Minors
This training video explains how to use the Term Census Report to answer the hypothetical questions, "What has the trend been in new first-time freshmen student enrollment in your program during the Fall quarter in the last 5 years? What about the last 10 years? Has there been growth or contraction of all new students, graduate and undergraduate, in your program for the last 10 completed years annually?" and export findings as an Excel document.
