Tentative Ten-Year Enrollment Projections Fiscal Years 1980-1989: A Supplement to the FY 1980 Capital and Operating Budgets of Montgomery Community College.
Armstrong, David F.
Extensive tables, figures, and data summaries outline the following components of tentative (as of November 1978) 10-year enrollment projections (1980-89) for Montgomery College (Maryland): (1) high school graduates--immediate enrollment, delayed enrollment, early graduations, private and parochial school graduations, and early placement students; (2) out-of-county and out-of-state residents; (3) returning matriculated students; (4) special or non-matriculated students; and (5) off-campus or extension credit students. Data is also provided for individual campus enrollment, student credit hour load, non-credit or credit-free short courses, and fiscal year 1979-80 estimates of number of students and number of credit hours expected. The model upon which the projections are based consists of a system of linear equations, and a number of sub-units of these which are related to a sector of the college's total student body. Each sub-unit allows for external information in a data matrix; past experience derivations in a factor matrix; professional judgment and reasonable expectations that are not reflected in past history in a prognostication matrix.
