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 which provides a point-in-time picture of Texas Christian University.

Data based on the Fall 2020 statistics have been combined and supplemented with historical data in each area. All data (except financial data) are compiled on the twelfth class day, September 1, 2020, 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 ended May 31, 2020. Student Right-to-Know information can be found at
