CSU 2003 2004 FactBook

The FactBook represents the continuing commitment of the Office of Institutional Research, Assessment & Analysis (IRAA) to present updated information about Cleveland State University. A variety of tables and charts provide trend information over a five-year period as well as some key attributes and characteristics of the University for the current academic year.

Several new pages have been added in 2003-2004 FactBook. They are:

Graduate Application Trend for Degree-Seeking Students
ACT/SAT Score by College and Gender
Maps of Headcount Enrollment by Counties
Fall to Fall Retention Rate for IPEDS Cohort
4th and 6th year Graduation Rate for Incoming IPEDS Cohort
Part-Time Faculty Statistics

In addition, a couple of procedural changes have also been made in the 2001-2002, 2002-2003 and 2003-2004 academic year FactBook. Therefore, extra caution must be taken when comparing data with previous years in the following areas:

Non-Degree Students: Students in the Non-Degree college category have been assigned an academic college based on their intended major or college. Therefore, the number of Non-Degree student headcount went down significantly both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

New Law and Doctoral Students: Students graduated from CSU and reentering in graduate, doctoral or in law school have been considered as new students. As a result new enrollment for certain colleges has increased in significant number, whereas the total enrollment remained consistent.

The Fall 2003 data suggest overall there is a positive trend in student enrollment compared with the previous year. Even though new undergraduate enrollment decreased by 3%, the new graduate enrollment increased by 7%. Consistent with the previous FactBook, the information presented is based on the Census Date (the 15th day) files specified by the Ohio Board of Regents (OBOR) unless it is specifically noted from a different data source. The purpose of this FactBook is to provide the readers with frequently requested statistical information used in planning, reporting, and assessment. In order to serve the campus community more efficiently, IRAA office welcomes your suggestions and comments. Please direct your questions and/or suggestions to (216) 687-4700 (or via the e-mail addresses provided below). The entire FactBook is ONLY available on line via IRAA website (

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of the campus community for their contributions to this publication.
