Selected Characteristics, Classified and Unclassified (Regular) Students: Community Colleges, Fall 1975.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
This document is comprised of charts and tables presenting enrollment data from fall 1971 through fall 1975 for the six community colleges in the Hawaii Community College System. The total fall 1975 enrollment figure of 30,476 compares to a 25,886 figure in fall 1974. Regular credit students comprise two-thirds of the registrants (20,617)--a 20 percent increase over fall 1974. Among the regular students, males continue to outnumber females; the margin widened to 57 percent in fall 1975. The mean age of regular students has risen from 24.3 to 25.0. The number of liberal arts majors increased from 8,059 to 9,810 (22 percent), and vocational majors from 6,825 to 8,764 (27 percent). Among vocational programs which greatly increased in number are: business, radiologic technology, human services, agriculture, and heavy equipment maintenance and repair. More students took fewer than 12 credits in fall 1975, and both full- and part-time students took lighter credit loads (11.0 average compared to 11.3 for fall 1974). The number of continuing students increased considerably on all campuses. Among the new students were 27 percent of the Hawaii 1975 high school graduates. The trends noted above, especially the increases in classified, continuing, and part-time students, have implications for planning. (NHM)
