Class Report

The Class Report supports planning, evaluation, and strategic decision-making related to course offerings, class size, and enrollment management.

The Class Report presents course enrollments, subject and section counts, and student credit hours. The most recent fall term is presented on the website; however, historical reports and year-average reports are available upon request. The option of viewing data at the department, campus, division, or organizational level is provided on the website. These data are further subdivided into undergraduate level vs. graduate level students and sections, lower division sections vs. upper division sections, tutorial sections vs. non-tutorial sections, primary sections vs. secondary sections, and other categories. Data for primary and secondary sections are further separated into regular courses, C-courses (cross-listed courses, which may appear in a single department as an undergraduate course and also as a graduate course), and M-courses (multiple-listed courses, which may appear in more than one department). The statistics are based on the fall third-week census data submitted to the University of California Office of the President.
