Information on enrollments and student characteristics at Washington state community colleges is provided in this report for fall 1982. After introductory material and report highlights, tables provide data on headcount and full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment for fall quarters 1978 through 1982; FTE and headcount by course intent category; state-supported course sections by course intent; FTE by time/location and course intent; FTE by instructional subject area; FTE faculty by employment status; rates of change in FTE enrollment, FTE faculty, course sections, and student/faculty ratios; FTE enrollment by source of support (i.e., state, contract, and student), by time/location, and by course intent; course sections by college by course intent; and FTE faculty by employment status and college. The next section gives systemwide and college data on students by age, gender, ethnic background, previous status, and full- or part-time status. Among the findings highlighted in the report are the following: (1) the fall 1982 headcount was 10% below that of fall 1981 following a decline of 17% between 1980 and 1981; (2) vocational FTE's decreased by 7%, while academic FTE's fell by 1%; (3) part-time students constituted half the enrollments in 1982 compared to 65% in 1978; and (4) day-time, on-campus students increased from 63% to 72% of the enrollment between 1978 and 1982.
