The ninth annual survey by the Office of Communications Services of the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) shows total enrollment at state and land-grant universities dipped from 3,362,846 in 1977 (391 campuses reporting) to 3,231,948 in 1978 (354 campuses reporting), a drop of 4 percent. The Office of Communications Services (OCS) obtained information from 133 of the Association's 142 member institutions. Figures are based on head counts of both full-time and part-time enrollment, and include extension students enrolled in courses for credit. OCS conducted a supplementary survey of extension enrollment for credit, and added these figures to data that members reported to the National Center for Education Statistics for its Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS). Statistical data are included in this report. (Author/MSE)
