  1. International students include NON-SEVIS and SEVIS students. "NON-SEVIS" includes students on all visa types (except students on F and J visas), students who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents. "SEVIS" includes students on F and J visas.
  2. Due to changes from the State of Florida DOE, students must have a Student Number Identifier, Florida (FLid) for submission to the state. The Continuity 2000 database does not contain Student Number Identifier, Florida (FLid) for students. Therefore, beginning in reporting year 2016-2017 the CWE students only include students found in Banner non-credit terms with FLids.
  3. Provided by Continuing Education department.
  4. Includes credit students, postsecondary adult vocational, Educator Preparation Institute, continuing education, conferences and seminars. Total is approximate - there may be some duplication across categories.
