Compilation of and Comparison of Student Credit Hours between MGCJC and the Eight State Universities.
Mississippi Gulf Coast Junior Coll., Perkinston.
An analysis of the total student credit hour (SCH) production for 1980-81 at Mississippi Gulf Coast Junior College (MGCJC) is presented and compared to the 1979-80 summer and regular session lower-division SCH production at the eight Mississippi state universities. First, the findings for MGCJC are presented, including: (1) 47% of the students attended full-time and produced 71.7% of the SCH; (2) 53% attended part-time and produced 23.8% of the SCH; (3) 10% were vocational students who produced 17% of the SCH; (4) 27.7% were technical students who produced 24% of the SCH; and (5) 67% were academic students who produced 58.9% of the SCH. Next, the report compares the SCH production at MGCJC with lower-division SCH production at the state universities, noting that MGCJC summer SCH production was greater than the lower-division summer production at any of the state universities; that MGCJC regular session SCH production surpassed the regular session production at each of the state universities; and that MGCJC total SCH production exceeded the total SCH production (including lower, upper, and graduate divisions) of all but three of the state universities. In concluding, the report points out the significance of the data and affirms the study methodology. Data tables are appended. (KL)
