RE:                 FY 1999-2000 Enrollments

 

Attached is a summary of the 1999-2000 FYFTE Enrollment numbers.  We just received the Third Week Spring Reports from each campus.  So I would stress that these are preliminary numbers.  We will be working with each campus to review these draft numbers for accuracy.   

 

The Legislature funded the MUS for 24,623 FTE for FY00 (this number can be found at the top of page three in the “Funding Model/proj” column as the total of MUS resident undergraduate and graduate FTE). 

 

Our preliminary enrollment count is 24,938.75, which is 315.75 above the funding level established by the Legislature.

 

You will notice that on the Helena College of Technology and the University of Montana-Missoula experienced an increase in resident undergraduate numbers – all other campuses declined in this category.  Resident graduate numbers are up across the system. 

 

Although non-resident FTE do not fall under State funding, you should note that there was a decline of 490.11 FTE in the MUS non-resident categories.

 

The Legislature funded the Community Colleges for 2180 FTE for FY00.  Our preliminary enrollment count is 1949.93, which is 230.07 below the funding level established by the Legislature.
