Facts & Data

The Fact Book is compiled by the Office of Institutional Research with the assistance and input of various other offices.  The purpose of the Fact Book is to serve as a ready reference that provides a point-in-time picture of Texas Christian University.  Data based on the Fall statistics are combined and supplemented with historical data in each area. All data (except financial data) are compiled on the twelfth class day of the fall semester and are comparable from year to year; however, changes in methods of calculation may have occurred. Footnotes on specific charts/tables call attention to substantive changes. Financial data are based on the fiscal year.

Texas Christian University has a Basic Carnegie Classification of R2: Doctoral Universities- High Research Activity.
