Evening Students--Community Colleges, Fall 1975.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
This study compares the characteristics of the 3,537 Hawaii community college students who took only evening credit courses in fall 1975 with day-only students and students enrolled in a mixture of day and evening courses. The evening-only student group comprised 17 percent of the total enrollment. In all three groups the majority were male, continuing students seeking a degree or certificate. Over 90 percent identified themselves as U. S. citizens and Hawaii as their permanent home. However, a greater percentage of students in the evening-only group were unclassified (23 percent compared to 6 percent for both the day-only and evening-day groups). There were also proportionately fewer general and pre-professional and vocational students in the evening-only group. Most of the evening-only students were part-time (78 percent). In contrast, the majority of day and evening-day students were full-time (66 and 72 percent respectively). The average age of the evening student was 31.8 years, 8 years older than the day student and 5 years older than the evening-day student. This report presents data for each of the seven Hawaii community colleges, and provides comparative data for the fall 1972 and spring 1975 semesters. Tables of data are appended. (Author/NHM)
