Selected Enrollment Statistics Relating to Continuing Education.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Office for Continuing Education.
This report provides statistical information on the development of continuing education since 1965. Although there is an increase in the number of part time students at most campuses each year, in many instances evening credit courses are not offered in a pattern which will allow enrollees to make consistent progress toward an undergraduate degree. The state-operated campuses enrolled 1,758 students in the fall of 1968. There was a slight increase in off-campus credit enrollments during 1967 and 1968 due largely to a greater use of technology. In the fall of 1968, 982 students were enrolled for credit in the Independent Study (Correspondence) Program. Currently, new enrollments are being added at an approximate rate of 225 a month and in December, 1969, 4,821 students were enrolled in this program at the 14 participating campuses. The first survey of non-credit programing in continuing education conducted in July 1968 for the 1967-68 academic year showed that 121,563 persons attended 1,786 short courses, institutes, and seminars. A similar study completed in July 1969 indicated that 2,439 short courses, institutes, and seminars were offered during the 1968-1969 academic year with 138,621 persons enrolled. (nl)
