trend that has continued this year is that students are taking
more courses. Full-time equivalent or FTE enrollment has risen
from 22,091 in 2004 to 22,242 this fall. Among the Colleges

area that actually saw a downturn in students was in those
attending Sacramento State on foreign visas. A combination
of circumstances, including competition from colleges in other
countries, lingering affects of federal restrictions on international
student visas, and CSU limitations on non-resident enrollment
has dealt a blow. As of the Sept. 27 census, student enrollment
of students on foreign visas was down more than 40 percent,

for spring and fall 2006 are currently being accepted, and
the University is aggressively recruiting.
