As we discuss our results today, unless otherwise noted, we will be comparing the third quarter of fiscal 2011, which ended May 31, 2011, to the third quarter of fiscal 2010. I'd also like to remind you that this conference call may contain forward-looking statements with respect to future performance, financial condition, regulatory compliance, and other matters regarding the business of Apollo Group that involve risks and uncertainties.

Various factors could also cause actual results of the Company to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed under risk factors and elsewhere in the Company's most recent 10-K and subsequent 10-Q reports filed with the SEC and available on our website at The Company disclaims any obligations to update any forward-looking statements made during the call.

Additionally, during the call we may refer to non-GAAP financial measures, which are intended to supplement but not substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Our press release, which contains financial and other quantitative information to be discussed today as well as the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures, is also available on our website.

With that, I'll turn the call over to Greg.
