  • 1 The student enrollment figures provided by the United States Department of Education are for the 2009 school year, the most recent available. The enrollment figures include full-time and part-time students.
  • 2 The FBI does not publish arson data unless it receives data from either the agency or the state for all 12 months of the calendar year.
  • NOTE: Caution should be exercised in making any intercampus comparisons or ranking schools because university/college crime statistics are affected by a variety of factors. These include demographic characteristics of the surrounding community, ratio of male to female students, number of on-campus residents, accessibility of the campus to outside visitors, size of enrollment, etc.
