This past week I presented the enrollment projections and degree estimates to the Council as a discussion item for action in October. If you note in the agenda item, there are four institutions Wendell will be following up with (if he hasn't already) because of inconsistencies in their SCHEV 2B submission. Thank you all for getting your submissions in on time for DC, CE, and EEE. This was the first year in a while that I could give a complete briefing at the September meeting.

The basic numbers are these from the Completion Scorecard:
