Enrollment Profile Report, Fall Semester 1975.
Alfred, Richard L.; And Others
This investigation begins with an examination of short-term and long-term enrollment trends in a national spectrum of colleges and universities. A review of the literature indicates that substantial increases in enrollment were experienced in all institutions in 1975, but enrollment over the next three decades will fall short of earlier projections. The regional enrollment picture for New York City Community College (NYCCC) does not parallel the national trend, since headcount enrollment for fall 1975 decreased 3.7 percent from 1974. Eight aspects of the enrollment distribution at NYCCC are examined in this document, including: (1) comparative enrollment summary; (2) matriculation status; (3) division enrollment; (4) program enrollment; (5) program demand; (6) average credits; (7) credit attrition; (8) geographic origin. The drop in enrollment is thought to be due to the financial crisis in New York City. This report suggests that institutional efforts will need to be directed to the development of new or additional resources for college programs. At the same time, renewed efforts must be made to insure the continued viability of the College and its programs through a meaningful program of evaluation. (Author/NHM)
