2015-2016 Compendium Data Organized by Section1. Students receiving degrees broken down by major college and program, 2008-09 to 2014-15
These tables show the number of students receiving degrees awarded in each year. For example, the 2014-15 column includes students graduating in summer 2014, fall 2014, and spring 2015. Students earning multiple degrees in one year are counted according to the number of degrees earned. This is in accordance with Ohio Board of Regents (OBOR) Higher Education Information (HEI) reporting guidelines. Students with multiple majors within the same degree are counted in only one program.
2. Fall semester student FTE and headcount broken down by major college and program, fall 2009 to fall 2015
These tables show the number of student headcount and FTE (credit hours taken by students divided by 15) in each fall academic term. The breakdowns are according to the students' major. Honors Tutorial majors are included with the "host" major category.
3. Fall credit hours taught broken down by college and department/school, fall 2009 to fall 2015, Athens Campus
These tables show the number of credit hours taught in each fall academic term. The breakdowns are according to the department/school and college providing the instruction.
4. Fall credit hours taught broken down by college and department/school, fall 2009 to fall 2015 by type of instructor, Athens Campus
These tables show the number of credit hours taught in each fall academic term. The breakdowns are according to the department/school and college providing the instruction. A separate table is provided for each of the following types of instructors of record:
5. First-year student retention rates broken down by major college and program 2008 to 2009 through 2014 to 2015
These tables show the percent of students entering the Athens campus in each fall academic term as degree-seeking first-year students who return as second-year students. Students are counted in each major according to the last major in which they enrolled because of the possibility that students can change majors after first enrolling. For example, a student entering as a first-year student in the fall with a major in psychology and returning the second fall with a major in psychology is counted in psychology in the cohort and as a returning student. A student entering as a first-year student in psychology in the fall who changed his/her major to English and returned the second fall with a major in English is counted in English in the cohort and as a returning student. A student entering as a first-year student in psychology in the fall who changed his/her major to English in the spring, and does not return before the second fall is counted in English in the cohort and as a non-returning student.
6. Cumulative graduation rates broken down by major college and program, 2003 to 2009 first-year cohorts
These tables show 4-, 5-, and 6-year graduation rates for first-year students entering the Athens campus in each of the fall academic terms from 2003 to 2009 as degree-seeking first-year students. As with retention rates, students are counted in each major according to the last major in which they enrolled (or graduated) because of the possibility that students can change majors many times over the course of 4, 5, or 6 years. Average time to graduate is calculated from the data given, assuming a minimum of 4 years and a maximum of 6 years.

7. Admissions statistics broken down by major college and program, fall 2009 to fall 2015
These tables show the numbers of students who applied for admission, were admitted, and enrolled each fall academic term as new first-year undergraduates and new graduate students. The breakdowns are according to the students' declared major throughout the admissions process.

8. New First-Year (Freshman) Student Profiles, fall 2009 to fall 2015
These tables show characteristics of entering first-year undergraduate students over seven years. Separate tables are available for each academic college, for African-American students, Hispanic students, and for the entire class.
9. Number of Group I faculty, 2009-2010 to 2015-2016
These tables show the headcount numbers of full-time Group I faculty, broken down by campus, college and department/school. Tenured and tenure-track faculty are included.
10. Group I Faculty Average Salary, 2009-2010 to 2015-2016
These tables show the average salaries for full-time Group I faculty. These data come from the annual AAUP faculty salary study.
11. Budgeted FTE broken down by college and department/school, 2009-10 to 2015-16
The budgeted full-time equivalent (FTE) staffing summary information comes from units' budget forms. Department chairs and school directors are included as faculty. Full-time graduate assistants are counted as .33 FTE. Each college's table includes a miscellaneous departmental category labeled "dean's office." Data within each college that cannot be directly attributed to a specific academic unit is included in these sections. Budgeted faculty and graduate assistants in each college who serve many departments may be included in these sections.
Administrative staff are separated into three categories to better portray their functions in the university. The three categories are academic administrators, administrative staff, and professional/technical staff. The total number of administrators is the total FTE of these categories. They are based on OBOR academic-nonacademic job classifications. Academic administrators include deans, advisors, and other academic administrators. Administrative staff include nonacademic administrators, executives, directors, and supervisors, accountants, and financial staff. Professional/technical staff include laboratory staff, librarians, technicians, and other staff requiring specialized skills.

12. Student/Faculty Ratios broken down by department/school and college, fall 2009 to fall 2015
These tables show the ratios between student FTE (credit hours taught by departments/schools divided by 15) to numbers of faculty and G.A.'s in those departments/schools.
13. Annual WSCH broken down by department/school and college, (Capacity)
These tables show the annual number of weighted student credit hours (WSCH) taught for fall, (winter,) and spring by departments/schools. New taxonomy tables also show the number of completed weighted student credit hours and the percent of completed weighted student credit hours.
Annual WSCH - New Taxonomy (2009-10 to 2014-15) (All academic year terms are included; summer is excluded)
Annual WSCH - Old Taxonomy (2002-03 to 2008-09) (All academic year terms are included; summer is excluded)

These tables show six ways in which students participate in joint ventures between and among the academic colleges. One table shows that the colleges offer courses through eLearning in addition to Athens on-campus courses. These courses may be taught through three different locations: on-campus; off-campus; and off-campus-Hong Kong. The table shows the total credit hours taught by each college at each location, with a grand total. Another table shows the headcount enrollment of Honors Tutorial students within each participating college and major. One table shows headcount enrollment of interdisciplinary majors. One table shows that students may choose a second major in their primary major college or in another college. (It is important to note that the numbers of second majors may be slightly inflated because of the way they are coded in the student information system.) One table shows student enrollment in each department/school as a first and second major. Finally, one table shows the headcount enrollment of master's students in International Studies majors.
General notes on tables on student majors:
Each college's table includes a miscellaneous category of student majors labeled "interdisciplinary." This is the designation for majors not attributable to individual or programs. "Undecided" majors in each college are included in this category. For example, in Arts and Sciences this would include "undecided Arts and Sciences" majors and "master's of social science" degree recipients. Individualized interdisciplinary program (IIP) majors are included in this category.
General notes on tables on credit hours taught:
Each college's table includes a miscellaneous departmental category labeled "interdisciplinary." Data within each college that cannot be directly associated with a specific academic unit is presented in these sections. These sections contain information on interdisciplinary or other programs. For example, the College of Engineering and Technology teaches interdisciplinary "Engineering Technology" courses budgeted from the Dean's Office.
