Enter the number of students (must be greater than zero) projected to be awarded the degree each year after the program is fully established. This number should be based on one of two data sources:
2-year enrollment data: Provide final (not census) enrollment data for all required existing courses for the last two years to validate the need for this program in the college service area.
Survey of prospective students: This option is useful for programs with new courses and no established enrollment data.
Staffing: Describe how program will impact staffing at the college.
Faculty Workload: Enter the number of full-time equivalent faculty (FTEF) that will be dedicated to teaching in the degree/certificate during the first full year of operation, regardless of whether they are new or existing faculty.

This estimate is not the number of FTES (full time equivalent students) expected to be generated by the program.
New Faculty Positions: Enter the number (not FTEF) of separately identified new faculty positions, both part- and full-time. For example, if three part-time positions will be new, then enter the number 3 (three). If existing faculty are sufficient for offering the degree/certificate and no plans exist to hire new faculty, enter 0 (zero).
Facilities and Equipment: Describe how program will impact facilities and equipment at both the college.
Estimated Cost of Equipment/Facilities: If new equipment or facilities will be acquired for the degree/certificate, estimate (in dollars) the total cost from all sources, including district and state funds.

Estimated Cost of Library/Learning Resources: If new library and learning resources materials will be required for the program, estimate (in dollars) the total cost for all materials. If no new library and learning resource materials will be acquired for the degree or certificate, enter zero (0).
