Collegiate Enrollments in American 2-Year Institutions, 1975-76: Statistics, Interpretations, and Trends. ACT Special Report Eighteen.
Parker, Garland G.
This report compiles 1975-76 enrollment information for 776 two-year postsecondary institutions, including accredited or approved degree-granting junior and community colleges, multi-purpose, technical, and/or vocational schools and institutes, and university branch campuses. Total enrollment for 1975-76 among the reporting institutions increased by 16.1% from 1974-75; full-time enrollment increased by 18.5% while part-time enrollment increased by 14.1%. Full-time students comprised 45.6% of the collegiate headcount but 71.6% of the full-time equivalent enrollment. The proportion of women to men declined from 46.4% of 1974-75 enrollment to 45.7% in 1975-76. Technical schools and institutes showed the greatest gain, with a 31.6% increase in total enrollment. Six tables, constituting the bulk of the document, break down the enrollment data by type of institution (public, church-affiliated, proprietary, or independent) and by geographical regions and states. Within these categories the data are presented by institution and by sex, full-time status, total students, full-time teaching staff and total teaching staff. An introductory narrative summarizes enrollment trends and provides a brief look at the future. (JDS)
