Overview

Student Enrollment Headcount dashboards present data organized by the declared majors of students, interns, and residents as of the third week of a term. Fall enrollments reflect a single snapshot taken in fall, whereas three-quarter average enrollments reflect an average of snapshots taken in fall, winter, and spring of an academic year. For trend analysis purposes, majors have been assigned to their current organizational area and most recent official program name. For more information on the methodologies for calculating enrollment numbers, please refer to the UCLA Academic Planning and Budget office website.

Note: These data are reported as unduplicated headcounts. That is, double majors are counted as 0.5, such that the count of all majors sums to the campus total headcount.

Definitions

Gender.  Prior to fall 2015, student undergraduate admissions applications contained a single item about gender with male and female response choices. Thus, the majority of our current students  selected one of these gender choices at application.

The following items have since replaced the previous assessment of gender as a binary construct. However, until we acquire sufficient data for these new gender items, we continue to report gender as male or female.

How do you describe yourself? (Choose from male, female, trans male/trans man, trans female/trans woman, genderqueer/gender non-conforming, or different identity (please specify))

What sex were you assigned at birth, such as on an original birth certificate? (Choose from male, female, or decline to state)

URM Status. American Indian/Alaskan Native, Black Non-Hispanic, and Hispanic students are considered  underrepresented minorities (URMs). All other students, including International and Unknown are considered non-URMs.

Sexual Orientation. Prior to fall 2015, the undergraduate student admissions application did not ask about sexual orientation. Since that time, the following item has been added to the application.  Once we acquire sufficient data, we will report students’ selections on this item.

Do you consider yourself to be: (Choose from heterosexual or straight, gay or lesbian, bisexual, not listed above (please specify))

Federal Pell Grant Program. This program provides needs-based grants to low-income students. Award amounts depend on financial need, cost of attendance, full-time or part-time enrollment status, and whether the student plans to attend for a full academic year or less. Pell Grant data are reported for undergraduate students only.
