Enrollment

(In view of conflicting information in various reports, including significant variations in reported numbers for the same term, variations due to “zaps”, i.e. cancellation of schedule due to non-payment, dismissals related to immunizations requirements, late registrations, late stat dates for high school dual credit courses, deletions for non-attendance and other variations, these numbers should be viewed as unofficial estimates, and actual numbers obtained from the Registrar’s Office)
