Stability of Educational Plans for Fall 1976; An Analysis of Educational Plans Made in Spring 1976 for Fall 1976. Student Flow Project, Report No. 19.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
In order to study the relationship between students' educational plans and deeds, questionnaires were administered in spring l976 to two groups of University of Hawaii (UH) community college students who entered in fall 1975: continuing students in their second semester at Hawaii, Honolulu, Maui, and Windward community colleges, and non-continuing students who left after one semester of enrollment at any one of the seven community colleges. Of 2,104 continuing students surveyed, 92% (1,926) had educational plans for fall 1976; almost all (1,870) planned to attend a UH campus. Of those with UH plans, 69% enrolled in fall 1976 as planned, 8% enrolled at a different UH campus than originally planned, and 23% did not enroll. Higher proportions of males, students below 19 years at entry, students in technology, and students with grade point averages of 3.0 to 3.4 actually enrolled as planned. Of those continuing students with no educational plans, over half returned to a UH campus in fall 1976. Of 877 non-continuing students, 430 (49%) had educational plans for fall 1976 and 321 planned to attend a UH campus. Of those with UH plans, 46% enrolled as planned, 5% enrolled at another campus, and 49% did not enroll. Differences between educational plans and actual enrollment were analyzed according to five student characteristics: sex, age, program, cumulative grade point average, and entry status. (JDS)
