New England Regional Student Program Enrollment Report 1975-1976.
New England Board of Higher Education, Wellesley, MA.
Data on enrollment for the 1975-1976 academic year in the New England Regional Student Program is presented. At both undergraduate and graduate levels, the regional program allows eligible students to receive preference in admission among out-of-state applicants in participating states, and to be charged the in-state tuition upon admission. Benefits, eligibility, participating colleges, and application information is explained. Statistics are included in the following categories: total enrollment, sectoral enrollment, enrollment in two-year colleges and institutes, four-year colleges, at the university undergraduate and graduate levels, and in the health professions. Institutional data are provided by type of institution and state (participating states are Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont). Among highlights of the report are the facts that 3,241 students enrolled in 554 degree programs at 65 institutions, that 443 students enrolled in Health Professions Contract Programs including veterinary medicine, for the first time, that there was an almost 10 percent increase in enrollment over the 1974-1975 academic year, and that New Hampshire and Connecticut continue as net exporters of regional students.
