*Campus Enrollment Data: derived from USG ADM file and Banner data of Georgia Perimeter College

* *Duplicated Headcount: A GPC student may have attended more than one campus location. In such cases, the student is counted once in each location category where they attended. As aresult, if all the campus location category headcounts were added together,their sum would be larger than the overall GPC headcount due to this duplication.
