The UTSA Fact Book was designed by the Fact Book Committee, a sub-committee of the Data Council and serves as a primary resource for both our on and off campus constituents who use data about UTSA. The Fact Book is published every fall and contains data from the previous five years. The Fact Book provides an overview of the most frequently required data regarding the university.

The data in the Fact Book are based on reports certified by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, they do not include students enrolled in self-supporting degree programs. For more information about self-supporting degree programs please contact the Office of Institutional Research at (210) 458-4706.

**Much of this information is now available in a more interactive format under the Dashboards tab on this website.**

There is also a section providing headlines about the university throughout the calendar year.
Student Enrollment The student enrollment information comes from the Coordinating Board Enrollment Report (CBM001) and the students' major comes from the Banner system. The college data is for the current college structure, meaning that the organization of the Colleges is based on the departments which are in each college in the Fall.

The Applied, Accepted, and Enrolled information comes from the Coordinating Board Admissions file (CBM00B), this file contains only the summer and Fall applications for each year. Only students who have never applied at the level are included in this information. Enrollment is based on the fall semester, in prior years it had been based on the student applied for. Note that although many new students enter UTSA each year only students who are first time students seeking a degree at UTSA are included in the Cohort for graduation and retention information.
New Undergraduates This section contains information on new undergraduate applications from the Coordinating Board Admissions file (CBM00B), this file contains only the Summer and Fall applications for each year.
