About FTEs and ICRs


Definitions
FTE and ICR are the acronyms for full-time equivalent and institutional class report. The CPCC Compliance and Audit Office generates the ICR each term. The ICR information is submitted to the N.C. Community College System (NCCCS) Office.

Source of data
The FTE data originates from the online attendance 10% roster, which contains student attendance and membership/contact hour information for each curriculum and Corporate and Continuing Education class.
NOTE: Accurate and timely completion of attendance is essential in order for the college to claim every FTE it has earned.  It is vital that faculty record attendance in the online system on at least a weekly basis.  (Tutorial of instructions for recording attendance.)

Purpose of reports
The FTE data reported on the 10% rosters form the basis of funding formulas, statistical analysis, and general Curriculum and Corporate and Continuing Education class information needs of the community college system.
NOTE: The reporting system produces FTE enrollment data, which determines a majority of the revenue for Central Piedmont Community College.

Annual state audits
The data reported are subject to State audits on an annual basis.

Reporting Deadlines
The CPCC Compliance and Audit Office depends on faculty and administration for timely reporting:

Curriculum class information is reported to the State System Office in the reporting period in which the class 10% point falls. Corporate and Continuing Education class information is reported based on the reporting period in which the class ends.
