FTEF is calculated using the CSU Chancellor's Office methodology from the CDPS Course Section Report and then rolled up to the College offering the class. This represents the FTEF used to teach courses in each College and may not match the FAD report which summarizes FTEF by department of appointment. Therefore, the Student /Faculty Ratios indicate the actual instructional experience in each College.  (IE source:dm_instrload)
