Visiting Scholars and PGMED Removed from Third Week Count Data Set

The Third Week Count Data Set (SA05) has been updated to exclude data for individuals in the Post-Graduate Medicine and Visiting Scholars programs. All future terms will exclude individual counts from these programs. You were notified in September of this upcoming change. View the details of that message, on the ITS Administrative Announcement Archive.

Important Information
-- If you are producing comparative reports presenting trend data, we strongly recommend that you show these two programs as “excluded enrollments” so that you can easily determine increases and decreases over time.
-- Registrar reports on the web for terms prior to Fall 2010 will reflect enrollment counts at the point they were created. This means that you should be careful in making comparisons based on these static reports.

This change has been made to ensure compliance with federal IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System) reporting requirements.
