Patterns of Direct Entry Enrollment of Public High School Graduates into Miami-Dade Community College. Research Report No. 84-01.
Designed to provide information on reasons for the enrollment decline of full-time, first-time-in-college students at Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC), this report presents data showing the patterns of Dade County public high school graduation and subsequent direct-entry enrollment into MDCC for the past 5 years. Introductory material provides background on declining first-time-in-college enrollments, and presents study methodology and results. Next, tables present: (1) a summary of graduation and MDCC enrollment patterns for each high school in the area for the past 2 years ordered by factors influencing MDCC headcount; e.g., whether there had been a decline in the absolute number of direct-entry graduates to MDCC, whether there had been a decline in the proportional draw to MDCC, whether MDCC was receiving fewer than 30% of the graduates as direct-entry students, and whether the school had fewer than 400 graduates; and (2) a summary of high school graduates by geographical area and subsequent enrollment at MDCC as direct-entry, first-time-in-college students for the years 1978 through 1982. The bulk of the report consists of data on direct-entry enrollments for four geographic areas, which including the number of students enrolling at MDCC from each graduating class and their distribution by campus; the percentage of direct-entry, first-time-in-college students; and statistics for each high school in that area individually. Finally, figures are presented illustrating enrollment data by campus and geographic area. (HB)
