Baldwin, Anne; Mannchen, Margaret
Data for 1981-82 and 1982-83 are presented and analyzed to show trends in degree/certificate completions, student demographics, and miscellaneous student factors at Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC). A series of 30 tables covers: (1) completions of degrees and certificates by term by campus; (2) a comparison of unduplicated graduate headcount to total completions awarded; (3) completions by certification type by term of completion for each campus and the college as a whole; (4) college and campus data on completions by first year of enrollment at MDCC; (5) college and campus data showing completions by gender and by ethnic category for each certification type; (6) completions by age at graduation; and (7) means of hours earned and attempted, grade point averages and duration of enrollment. Analyses of the data indicate that there were 5,645 completions in 1982-83, representing a decline of 1,865 in the absolute numbers of completions from 1981-82. Associate in arts degrees represented 72.8% of the degrees awarded in 1982-83, and 77.0% of those awarded in 1981-82. Collegewide proportional data remained relatively stable for 1981-82 and 1982-83 in the areas of multiple degree completions, citizenship status, residency, completions by year of first enrollment, mean age, and mean hours earned to mean hours attempted.
