Headcount by Student Credit Hours: Fall 1982 and Fall 1981. Report No. 83-1.
Data are presented on student headcount enrollments in the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) within six credit hour categories: 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12, 13-15, and more than 16 credit hours. Using 45th day enrollments, table 1 shows differences between 1981 and 1982 headcount within the credit hour categories and table 2 provides data for fall 1980 through fall 1982. Table 3 shows headcount by credit hour categories for fall 1981 and 1982, using high-point data, that is, 45th day enrollment plus withdrawals. Tables 4 through 10 show changes in headcount by credit hour between 1981 and 1982 for each of the seven colleges in the district. Selected findings include the following: (1) there was an overall increase in student headcount of 3,769 students between fall 1981 and 1982, which was mainly accounted for by additional part-time students taking between one and three credit hours; (2) the number of students enrolled for 7 to 9 hours per week decreased between 1981 and 1982; (3) major changes in headcount were increases in the 1-3 and 10-12 credit hour categories and a decrease in the 4-6 credit hour category; and (4) while between-semester enrollment patterns were the same using 45th day and high-point data, full-time students accounted for more of the total headcount at high-point than at 45th day.
