Full-time Equivalent

FTE, FTSE

FTE means “full-time equivalency” for the purposes of full-time enrolled students. At NPC a student who is enrolled in 12 or more credits is considered full-time. The full-time equivalent (headcount) of NPC's part-time student enrollment is estimated by multiplying the factor (.335737) times NPC's part-time headcount. This figure is then added to the full-time enrollment headcount to obtain an FTE for all students enrolled in the fall at NPC.

  • You can find NPC's current FTE number on the current IPEDS report.
