Studies in Enrollment Trends and Patterns. Part I--Regular Academic Year: 1930-1964.
Schmid, Calvin F.; And Others
Part I, which concerns regular, degree-credit, day students, is part of a study to analyze major facets of institutional change at the University of Washington. It is a guide for determining administrative decisions and policy as well as for developing future plans for the University. Part I covers: class differentials in enrollment trends and forecasts; trends in undergraduates by major field and college; trends in graduate and professional students by major field and college; trends in course enrollment and credit hours; trends in graduate and undergraduate degrees; trends in enrollment by age and sex; trends in geographic distribution of enrollment; enrollment trends by marital status; and trends in religious preference of the student body. Fall Quarter enrollment data were utilized because they are generally more representative, comparable and comprehensive than data for other terms. Virtually all the basic data were obtained from the registrar's office and most of the information was derived from student responses on registration forms. To ensure the maximum possible reliability, other University records were examined and members of the administrative and teaching staffs consulted. Extensive use was made of graphic techniques. Part II concerns Summer Quarter students and Part III, evening class and extension students. (JS)
