Career Education and Transfer Program Enrollments in 2-Year Colleges, 1973-74. ACT Special Report 11.
Parker, Garland G.
This document presents detailed institutional enrollment tabulations by career and transfer program areas as well as by sex, full-time or part-time enrollment, and total enrollment figures. It consists principally of 12 tables: the first six tables present overall enrollments by institution and by program in 158 two-year colleges (67 junior colleges, 38 community colleges, 36 technical colleges, and 17 technical/vocational institutes); the remaining six tables present enrollments of full-time freshmen by program in the same institutions. The following eight program areas are considered: trades and industrial, technical, natural sciences, health, arts and humanities, social science and public service, business contact and marketing, and business detail and office. Fifty-eight percent of the 234,008 students enrolled in the 158 sampled colleges chose essentially career type programs, but 41.7 percent continued to elect basically baccalaureate-bound options. The fact that there was no more than a two percentage point differential between freshman and total enrollments in any one program indicates no significant shift in the attendance pattern of the 1973-74 freshmen class as compared to the total student population counted.
