Full Time Equivalent Values for Fiscal Years

Full-time Equivalent (FTE) enrollment statistics are reported to the NC Community College System, and are then used to determine the college's operating budget.  Compliance Reviews are conducted at each college bi-annually to ensure the enrollment figures as reported are accurate.  If inaccuracies are found that require the college to revert funding, the amount to be reverted is determined by the formula established by the NC Community Colleges Finance and Operations Division for the year in which the review is conducted.
