Admissions tables show average number of applicants, admissions, and enrollments in the program during the application cycles. Master’s program tables show averages for the three most recent spring/summer/fall application cycles; doctoral profiles show averages for summer/fall cycles. When available, GRE scores and GPA data from previous institutions are included in averages. Beginning with the FY 2013 reports, GRE scores have been converted into the current score ranges to allow comparisons over time.

Student support includes any assistance disbursed through or recorded in the university HR Pay, financial aid, student financials, or third party payment systems. Assistantship data are calculated for 9 months, and includes appointments in departments other than the students’ program, including on the Medical Center campus, if applicable. Other support includes assistance received during the academic year as of that date. Other institutional support may include tuition waivers and adjustments; scholarships, grants, and fellowships; and other grant-funded or institutional support. Some external support may not be included.

Departmental Faculty includes tenured and tenure track faculty, regular and temporary instructors, and other instructional faculty paid by the department governing this program. Faculty counts are taken in October of each year and may include faculty administrators and tenured faculty on phased retirement.

Enrollment and demographic counts are included for the most recent fall and averaged for the previous three fall semesters.

Degree counts and time to degree data are included for the previous six years, in three-year increments. Time to degree calculations are based on time elapsed from the first semester enrolled as a degree-seeking graduate student in the program's department to the graduation term.

Postdoctoral plans as reported on the Survey of Earned Doctorates at the time of dissertation submission are included for the most recent five years available. Type of employer or further training type is collected only for students with firm postdoctoral plans.
