For Distance Education Students, the University of Kentucky tracks this area based on enrollments where one enrollment equals one student enrolled in a distance learning course. The average course credit for these courses is 3 hours and FTE at UK is 12 hours per semester. In the spring of 2015 there were 8847 enrollments in distance learning courses. We multiplied that number by 3 (credit hours) and divided this by 15 hours (FTE) to arrive at 1769 FTE Distance Education Students. This is a rough approximation, but it is the only quantifiable option possible with the available data.
