Notes: • Due to rapid changes in university structure and majors, we are not able to keep the historical college mappings or student preferred college mappings for certain majors. The college mappings for each major are based on most the recent structure.
• Starting in Fall 2011, graduate student load is no longer calculated solely on the basis of enrolled credit hours, but is calculated using the full-time classifications defined in the university catalog.
• Starting in Fall 2011, certificate and special program students are displayed separately.
• Starting in Fall 2011, Distance Education is defined as students enrolled in courses where 50% or more of the instruction is offered via distance education; internships, individual study, and study abroad are excluded.
• Starting with the Fall 2012 census, degree-seeking students who attended Mason previously and returned at the same degree level after attending another institution are considered continuing students. Prior to Fall 2012 they were considered transfer students.
