1975-79 Enrollment, WSCH, and ADA Projections. Research Report 75-03.
Alworth, Robert M.
Los Angeles Community College District projects an enrollment of 144,030 by 1979, an increase of 16.5 percent over the fall 1974 figure of 123,662. A 20.4 percent increase in evening enrollment is anticipated, compared to a 13.7 percent growth in day enrollment. Associated with expansion of the evening program are projected increases in the average age of students (30 years old by fall 1979) and the number of part-time students. Weekly Student Contact Hour (SWCH) increases are not expected to keep pace with enrollment gains because of the anticipated decline in individual student loads. Average daily attendance (ADA), the basis for District income, is expected to increase 13.6 percent in the next five years. ADA generated by defined adults (over 21, enrolled for fewer than 10 WSCH) is expected to grow 17.7 percent while ADA generated by others should grow 12.7 percent. Enrollment, WSCH, and ADA projections for the district are composite figures of the individual campus projections. These individual projections are reported, and factors related to the projected increases such as expanded programs and the establishment of two new permanent facilities are noted. (MJK)
