    Notes:
  • These tables show graduate-level enrollment for the given Fall terms.
  • For each category (e.g. Male), the percentage shown is the percentage of the total enrollment for the group.
  • Gender is self-reported and optional, so males+females may not equal the total.
  • "International" means students who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
  • "Minority" includes U.S. citizens and permanent residents of African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic/Chicano/Latino, American Indian, and Hawaiian/Pacific Islander ethnicity. Ethnicity is self-reported.
  • The Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) broad disciplinary field is based on the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code that has been assigned to the graduate program.
  • Source of the data is the Official 10th Day Fall Registration Statistics (STIX). See http://dw.umn.edu and http://www.oir.umn.edu/student/enrollment. Note that non-degree-seeking graduate students (i.e. enrolled in the GRAD academic career) are counted here, whereas on the OIR website they are counted in a separate academic level with all non-degree students.

      Notes:
    • The above tables show the age distribution for students enrolled at the graduate level for the given Fall terms.
    • Source of the data is the Official 10th Day Fall Registration Statistics (STIX). See http://dw.umn.edu and http://www.oir.umn.edu/student/enrollment. Note that non-degree-seeking graduate students (i.e. enrolled in the GRAD academic career) are counted here, whereas on the OIR website they are counted in a separate academic level with all non-degree students.
    • Age, in years, is as of the date the STIX file was created (generally the 10th day of the term).
