Hurricane Katrina forced the closing of Tulane University for most of the fall 2005 term. While there were a few limited classes held at remote sites in the area, there were no classes held on the university's main campus. Our students visited away at over 600 institutions during this period. Therefore, no formal enrollment figures will be published for fall 2005. For most reporting purposes, it is suggested that fall 2004 data be used. However, the official Spring 2006 Enrollment counts are presented via PDF for your information.
The Classification summary includes all students, both full and part time.
Freshmen (First Time) counts only first time full time students classified as freshmen. Continuing freshmen are counted separately in Freshmen (Other).
Medical Residents and Fellows are included in the overall counts and in the university's FTE (all as full time). They are also included in the Gender category but not in any of the other demographic categories.
Others includes special student types such as guest students, consortium, and non-degree seeking students. As of fall 2019, this category also includes students enrolled in certificate-only programs.
Average Course Load is computed in the usual manner except that those students enrolled for zero hours (for example thesis and/or dissertation) are ignored for purposes of the calculation.
Full Time Equivalents are computed as the sum of all full time students plus one-third of the part time count.
Living On Campus refers to those students residing in all residence halls on the uptown campus.
Over 25 Years Old refers to students who have reached their 25th birthday by October 1st (the official fall census date)in the report year.
New Admits includes all students admitted for the Fall term in question including first time freshmen and transfer students, guest students etc.
Foreign students are defined as those students who are non-resident aliens. This category no longer includes permanent residents from other countries.
Ethnic counts include both citizens of the United States as well as citizens of other nations who are now permanent residents in this country.
Geographic Regions summarize the student-reported permanent addresses of non-foreign students. Regions are defined as:
