Some Trends in L.A.C.C. [Los Angeles City College] Enrollments, 1960-1974.
Gold, Ben K.
Enrollment trends at Los Angeles City College from September 1960 through June 1974 are presented in the form of graphs supplemented by statistical tables. Observations and conclusions derived from the data include: (1) With the exception of Fall and Spring 1969-70, day enrollments arose steadily from 1963 to 1973, with a leveling off in the 1973-74 school year; (2) Evening enrollment fluctuates considerably more than day enrollment; (3) Male enrollment percentage has been consistently higher in the day than in the evening; (4) Percentage of full-time day students (those carrying 12 or more units) rose from 58 percentage in 1964 to 70 percent in 1967 and then declined back to about 58 percent; (5) Numbers of first time day freshmen have been fairly steady for ten years, the increase in enrollments is thereby attributed to an increase in continuing students; (6) Students tend to carry lighter loads and stay in school longer than they have in the past; (7) Average Daily Attendance (ADA) generally reflects the same patterns as enrollment; (8) Enrollment trends from the 20 major "feeder" Los Angeles high schools show that the percentages of graduates from these high schools attending Los Angeles City College has remained steady at approximately 20 percent.
