The Enrollment Potential for Cuyahoga Community College; 1966-1971.
Fox Lawrence E.
A study which was designed to predict the student potential for Cuyahoga Community College for the 5-year period of 1966-71 included information about (1) the enrollment experience and student characteristics of the institution sinceits inception in 1963 (with an initial enrollment of 3,039 which more than tripled during the following two years), (2) population movement and growth in the county (in which it was shown that the suburban population continued to grow while the urban population--especially that of Cleveland--declined), (3) enrollment potential based on tabulation by estimated attrition percentages, and (4) sources of enrollment potential in the county based primarily on a 1965 survey in which 17,909 of the county's 22,140 high school seniors participated. The study revealed that between 1965 and 1980 the total population of the county would increase from approximately 1.7million to 2.2 million (22%), the college-age population would increase from 111,000 to 149,000 (35%), there would be a 43% increase in the number of persons desiring education at the college level in the county, and there would be more than 50,000 full-time and part-time students for whom there were no accommodations presently planned. Results of the study indicated that during each of the five years immediately following, from four to 19% of the county's high school graduates would attend CCC. (DG)
