Calculators

*Calculator results are based upon current state and local FTE/FTES processes.  Actual FTE and Weekly Hour calculations may vary based upon individual college final calculations.

Lecture Hours/Week and Lecture FTE

 
/ 15 =

 

Lab Hours/Week and Lab FTE

   
( ( * 2 ) / 3 ) / 15 =

 

Lecture/Lab or Appendix F Labs and Lecture/Lab FTE

   
( ( * 3 ) / 4 ) / 15 =

 

Non-instructional Hours and Non-instructional FTE

   
( / 17.5 ) / 35 =

 

Total Hours to Weekly Hours

 
/ 17.5 =

 

Weekly Census FTES

Example:

For English 1 (Tues & Th 8:00-10am)

(28 students x 4 hours per week) = 112 WSCH
112 WSCH x 17.5 = 1,960
1960/525 = 3.73 FTES

Notes: In addition to the lecture enrolled component, you might also have a lab enrolled component. That can be calculated the same way. If the lab is one day a week from 6-9pm, than (40 students x 3 hours/wk)=120 WSCH. Than 120 WSCH x 17.5 = 2100 ans 2100/525 = FTES

Daily Census FTES

Example:

For ESL 845 (Monday to Thursday 8:00-11:00am (9 weeks) - Fall 2005 so exclude holidays so instead of 36 meetings, it would be 35 meetings.

(32 students x 3 hour per meeting) = 96 DSCH

96 DSCH x 35 meetings = 3360

3360/525 = 6.4 FTES

Positive Attendance FTES

Example:

Student1   102 hours
Student2   96 hours
Student3   93 hours
Student4   101 hours, etc

392/525 = .746 FTES

To determine WSCH equivalent

392/17.5 = 22.4 WSCH

Independent Study FTES

Example:

Fashion Design Class (FD73AD) TBA, but full-term

5 students x 3 units = 15 WSCH
15 WSCH x 17.5 = 262.5
262.5/525 = 0.5 FTES
