Projected Reasons for Concurrent Enrollment at Pima Community College and the University of Arizona--Fall 1976-77.
Baker, Jeanette
Since the opening of Pima Community College (PCC), the occurrence of concurrent enrollment at the University of Arizona and PCC has become common. Of the 584 concurrent registrants in the fall 1976 class at PCC, 9.4% were freshmen, 24.3% sophomores, 22.6% juniors, 24.2% seniors, and 19.5% unclassified. The most frequently taken courses at PCC were general University requirements or general education requirements of specific disciplines. A number of possible reasons for this trend are examined in this study. Contributing factors may have been: more convenient scheduling, more frequent course offerings and the more convenient location of PCC. It is also suggested that many students may have chosen to take a course in which they felt they might do poorly at PCC and not have a poor grade affect their grade point average at the University. Class size did not appear to be a contributing factor, as class sizes were comparable, nor did student costs seem to be a primary reason. (AYC)
