The Fall 2011 is the first in term after which the Restructuring the Oversight and Support of Graduate Education to Enhance Excellence plan was completed. Per the plan summary: "The Graduate School will be reconfigured from a free-standing administrative unit to which all graduate programs directly report, to an Office of Graduate Education that parallels the Office of Undergraduate Education."
The FAQ section explains how this change will affect institutional reporting: "Professional degrees, master's programs, and applied doctoral programs outside the Academic Health Center will be the responsibility of collegiate units and campuses. For health professional programs, the current process in health sciences will continue."
Our Official Enrollment Reports have always reported graduate students based upon their college of enrollment as opposed to the graduate school, so these counts will not change. However, due to the reclassification of students in the underlying system, a majority of Continuing graduate students have been classified with a registration status of Intra Campus Transfer (Intra CT) instead of Continuing.
Please keep this in mind when looking at the Registration Status reports for Twin Cities and Duluth graduate students. The charts pictured below illustrate the jump in Intra CT registrations.
Morris, Crookston and Rochester campuses do not have Graduate programs, so they were not affected by this change.
