We have recently had a discussion with our admissions folks around the concept of enrollment and matriculation. Our admissions folks wait until the end of the add/drop period to say that a person is a student. Even if the student has enrolled for credits and is attending classes, if they leave before the end of add/drop, they refer to them as "melt" and don't count them as enrolled. On the other hand, the registrar's office has been counting students as enrolled when they enroll for credits. Does anyone have a clarification on this? It impacts a number of surveys. Thanks in advance.
