Breen, Edward F.; Snyder, Lynne
This report relates Macomb County Community College's experience with mail registration for fall 1977 and fall 1978, drawing comparisons with headcount and total credit hour data for on-site registration. In addition, data concerning average credit hours taken per student during both terms are presented. Of the students who enrolled during fall 1978, 39.57% (10,146) registered by mail for 80,655 credit hours (7.95 hours per student); this represents an increase over 1977 when 7,202 registered by mail for 64,124 credit hours (8.9 hours per student). The 15,494 students who registered on campus during fall 1978 enrolled for 96,166 credit hours (6.21 hours per student); 1977 figures showed 18,088 students registering for 117,028 credit hours (6.47 hours per student). Thus, total enrollment for the fall 1978 term showed a slight decrease in headcount and a small decrease in total number of credit hours compared with the 1977 fall term. Headcount and total number of credit hours increased substantially for mail registrants, but decreased for on-site registrants. The hours per student, for fall 1978, decreased for both mail registrants (10%) and on-site registrants (4%). While mail registrants continued to enroll for more credit hours per student, both mail and on-site average hours per student decreased in 1978. Tables outline the data for the college as a whole and for each of the three campuses. (MB)
