Evening Students--Community Colleges, Fall 1976-Spring 1977.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
This report examines selected characteristics of evening students in Hawaii community colleges and compares evening-only students with students taking day courses only and students taking both day and evening courses. The distribution of students by time of attendance in fall 1976 was 17% evening-only, 72% day-only, and 12% evening-day. A total of 6,045 students were registered in evening classes, constituting 29% of the total enrollment. The three groups of students were similar in that most were continuing, the majority were males, and the majority were seeking degrees. However, the evening-only students differed from the other two groups inasmuch as a greater proportion were unclassified (not seeking a degree or certificate), a greater proportion were enrolled in vocational classes, 83% were part-timers, their mean ages were six to eight years older, 60% were married, and 72% were pre-1972 high school graduates. Overall, the number of evening students showed an increase of 1% from the previous year. Extensive tabular data comparing the evening-only students to the other two groups, by selected characteristics, for each of the Hawaii community colleges and for the total system are appended. (JDS)
