Applicant No-Show Survey, Community Colleges, Fall 1975. Student Flow Project, Report No. 3.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
This study presents the findings of one of several studies intended to form a basis for the development of a student flow model for the Hawaii community college system. In order to discover why students, admitted for fall 1975 by a particular community college, did not enroll at that campus, a questionnaire was sent to 3,240 "no-shows." The total response rate was 66 percent. An analysis of the characteristics of the respondents showed that they were representative of the total "no-show" population in terms of applicant status, program, and sex. Results indicate that over half of the respondents were actively engaged in other activities: 28 percent working, 19 percent attending other educational institutions, and 4 percent serving in the military. Ten percent of the "no-shows" indicated financial reasons for not enrolling and 13 percent indicated the unavailability of the program or course desired. Data is further broken down in the report to indicate the reasons cited by respondents, by sex, by program (liberal arts or vocational), and by permanent home address (State of Hawaii or U.S. Mainland), by "new" or transfer student status, and by community college applied to. Detailed data is presented in tables appended to the text. (DC)
