MP Table

The Master Planning (MP) Table provides data that are helpful for course scheduling and staffing. This table displays 11 years of annual data including unduplicated headcount for the major, course level and student level student credit hours (SCH), instructional and workload FTE, count of degrees awarded, and degree ratios. These categories are divided into subcategories. For example, the headcount of majors is further divided into lower division, upper division, and graduate student levels; instructional FTE is subdivided into faculty and TA categories. The option of viewing data at the department, division, organization, or general campus level is provided on the MP Table website.
