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. Fact Books prior to Fall 2020 do not include students enrolled in self-supporting degree programs. Fall 2020 and later Fact Books include self-supporting degree programs. For more information about self-supporting degree programs please contact Institutional Research and Analysis at (210) 458-4706.
**Much of this information is now available in a more interactive format under the Dashboards tab on this website.**
Fall 2020 Fact Book Sections
|History and General Information||This section of the Fact Book contains general information about the university such as the Mission Statement, Administration and other interesting aspects of the university. 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 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.|
|Courses Taught||The "courses taught" information comes from the Coordinating Board Course Report which is certified by the state. The Course level comes from the Course Inventory. For each section the number of courses offered, the number of students enrolled, and the number of semester credit hours generated are included. The section on College comes from the subject of the course and is for the current college structure. The Semester Credit Hours (SCH) and Full Time Equivalent information by colleges are included in this section.|
|Undergraduate Admissions||Applied, Accepted, and Enrolled information comes from the Coordinating Board Admissions file, which contains only Summer and Fall applications for each year. Only applicants who never previously enrolled at the undergraduate level are included in this information. We base enrollment on the fall semester. This includes the applications and enrollments of students who applied to enter in summer and also enrolled in fall but excludes transient summer students.|
|Graduate Admissions||Applied, Accepted, and Enrolled information comes from the Coordinating Board Admissions file, which contains only Summer and Fall applications for each year. Only applicants who never previously enrolled at the level (masters, doctoral) are included in this information. We base enrollment on the fall semester. This includes the applications and enrollments of students who applied to enter in summer and also enrolled in fall but excludes transient summer students.|
|New Undergraduates||New first-time in college and first-time transfer undergraduate enrollment is based on the Coordinating Board Enrollment file and the New Student Cohort file. The file contains enrollment and demographic information for first-time undergraduates, new transfer undergraduates, and first-time, full-time undergraduates. Note that although many new students enter UTSA each year, only first-time full-time students seeking a degree are included in the Cohort to calculate retention and graduation rates.|
|Degrees Awarded||This information is based on the Banner Degrees Awarded table and the Student Demographic table as of the time the file was run. The College information is based on the current College Structure and the data is provided for the full academic year from Fall (FL) to Summer (SU). An interactive view of this data is also now available here: Degrees Awarded.|
|Faculty||The Coordinating Board Faculty Report provides data regarding all faculty members at the university, including Teaching Assistants. This includes faculty members who are not teaching courses. There are separate sections for All Faculty, Tenured/Tenure Track Faculty, Teaching Assistants and Instructional Faculty members.|
