Notes:
* Starting in Fall 2011, graduate student load for "All Reportable Hours" is no longer calculated solely on the basis of enrolled credit hours, but is calculated using the full-time classifications defined in the university catalog; student load for "Traditional Hours" and "Contract Hours" is still calculated solely on the basis of enrolled credit hours.
* Starting in Fall 2011, certificate and special program students are displayed separately.
* Starting in Fall 2011, Distance Education is defined as students enrolled in courses where 50% or more of the instruction is offered via distance education; internships, individual study, and study abroad are excluded.
* Starting with the Fall 2012 census, degree-seeking students who attended Mason previously and returned at the same degree level after attending another institution are considered continuing students. Prior to Fall 2012 they were considered transfer students.
* Starting with the Spring 2014 census, Contract Hours and Traditional Hours are reported by campus.
* Since opening in Spring 2014, the Korea campus data have been excluded from Spring BOT files due to their March start. From Spring 2016 on Korea is included in Spring BOTs. Fall BOTs and all Census and EOT files have included Korea data from the start.
* Special Programs: Access
