Survey of California Community College Evening Enrollments.
Gold, Ben K.
This investigation was conducted to identify trends in evening enrollment patterns among the California community colleges outside the Los Angeles District, and to identify causes for those trends. Seventy-four college presidents (87% of those contacted) responded to the questionnaire. Enrollment statistics are presented by year from 1966 to 1971 for large (4,000+), small (0-999), and medium (1,000-3,999) size colleges. Some conclusions were: (1) of the 50 colleges reporting data for 1966-1971, only four had a smaller evening enrollment in 1971; (2) the enrollment at small colleges generally increased at a faster rate than large colleges; (3) the reasons for enrollment increase most often given were growth due to normal expansion and increased off-campus offerings; (4) about one-third of the colleges charge a "defined adult" fee, the majority charging $3.00 per unit; and (5) new types of recruitment procedures have been initiated by 25 colleges, the most effective was publishing special class offering schedules in the local press.
