Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Office of Institutional Research and Analysis.
Registration data from six Hawaii community colleges were examined to determine the characteristics of those students enrolled in credit programs during Summer l980. Data were collected and analyzed on headcount enrollment and students' age; sex; program; status as continuing, new, or transfer students; citizenship; permanent and local residence; and semester hours carried. Major findings revealed that 3,047 regular students were enrolled in credit courses, representing a 9% increase from the previous summer's enrollment of 2,807. Further analysis of the data indicated that: (1) the number of males decreased from the previous year by nine students, while the number of females increased by 242; (2) 30% of the students were liberal arts majors, 28% were in vocational programs, and 41% were unclassified; (3) the majority of the students enrolled were continuing students; (4) the mean student age was 26.5 years; and (5) the students carried an average load of 4.1 credit hours and generated 12,485 semester hours. The study report presents findings for each campus and compares results with data collected each summer since 1976. (JP)
