Headcount is a measure of a unit's student population; the
resource planning effort attributes students to units by primary
HUB plan (major).
The Vice Provost for Enrollment Management leads a discussion on planned headcount enrollment with each unit, along with Resource Planning and Institutional Analysis, in the fall, prior to the launch of the ARPP. The results of these discussions will be incorporated into your unit's three-year plan.

Tuition revenue represents the revenue associated with student credit hour enrollment; the resoure planning effort attributes tuition revenue to units based on the tuition rate paid per credit hour by each student and the accounts associated with each course section in which the student is enrolled.

Advanced training represents students who receive instruction outside of the classroom, such as medical residents.
Currently, only the medical and dental schools have students

information for these students can be found on the faculty and
staff tab of the SIRI ARPP dashboard.
