Student Demand and Financial Projections for Colorado Higher Education, Fiscal Years 1993 through 2002. Colorado Commission on Higher Education Master Plan Background Papers.
Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Denver.
This report presents tables, charts and analysis on projection of demand for Colorado postsecondary education from 1993 to 2002 for use as a baseline in policy making discussion. The projections are called "baseline" because they are based on an "All Things Remaining the Same" assumption, assuming that current enrollment patterns as measured by the last 6 years will apply in the future. The data and analysis cover the following topics: (1) headcount by institution type; (2) in-state graduate and undergraduate students; (3) out-of-state graduate and undergraduate students; (4) projections of first-time students; (5) population projections; (6) enrollment levels (full- or part-time); and (7) percentages of females. A section on financial implications of the projections covers revenue estimates, changes from 1986-87 to 1992-93, 1993-94 projections and 2001-02 projections. A final section looks at projection of degrees granted by level. An executive summary notes that overall, public, in-state headcount enrollment is likely to increase by 22.2 percent by 2001 and that to maintain a state share of cost per student of 66 percent, a $100 million increase in state funding will be needed. In addition, overall undergraduate enrollment could grow at a slightly higher rate than graduate enrollment. (JB)
