Use the formula below to determine the number of faculty/staff full-time equivalent (FTE) employees your institution has.

Include only knowledge workers in FTE calculation. Employees such as maintenance, grounds keeping, and others who do not use technology as a part of their regular work should be excluded.

How to Calculate your FTE

If an institution has 200 full-time faculty, 300 part-time faculty, 300 full-time staff, and 400 part-time staff, the FTE employee count is calculated as follows:

200 + (300 ÷ 3) + 300 + (400 ÷ 2) = 800 FTE employees

In this case the desktop platform product licenses would be based on 800 FTE employees.
