Federal Stimulus Funding

Federal stimulus funding includes funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (2009 through 2012), the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (2020 through 2024), the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (2021 through 2024), and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (2021 through 2024).

Total Enrollment

Total enrollment is defined as total number of men and women enrolled for credit in the fall of the academic year. Total enrollment was calculated using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) through fiscal year 2023, then projected for fiscal year 2024 using fall 2023 enrollment estimates published by the National Student Clearinghouse. Total enrollment is the unduplicated 12-month enrollment at institutions from July 1 of one year through June 30 of the next. Prior to 2010–11, institutions could choose to report enrollment on the 12-month period between July 1 and June 30 or September 1 and August 31.
