Selected Characteristics, Classified and Unclassified (Regular) Students, Spring 1975.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
Of all students enrolled in the six community colleges of Hawaii in Spring 1975, 65 percent are regular (credit) students, 17 percent are "other" students (COP, PREP, senior citizens, non-credit), 14 percent are apprentices/journeymen, two percent are special students (concurrent early admits and continuing education), and one percent are Hoomana and MDTA program students. The enrollment of regular students has increased four percent over fall 1974 and 18 percent over Spring 1974. Forty-nine percent of all students are general and pre-professional majors, 40 percent are vocational students, and 11 percent are unclassified; the proportions last Spring were 47 percent, 40 percent, and 13 percent, respectively. Continuing students constitute 69 percent and new students constitute 17 percent, compared to 73 percent and 13 percent last Spring. The mean age of the 1975 Spring enrollees is slightly higher (25.3) than the mean age in the previous Fall (24.4) and Spring (24.7) semesters. There are more part-time students and, as a group, the students carry lighter credit loads. Those students graduating from high school five or more years ago compose slightly over half of the new students. Tables presenting enrollment data from Fall 1970 to Spring 1975 and student characteristics data for the entire system and for each of the six community colleges are appended. (Author/DC)
