New England Regional Student Program Enrollment Report 1978-79.
New England Board of Higher Education, Wellesley, MA.
Enrollment statistics for 1978-79 participation in the New England Regional Student Program are presented. The program is designed to provide residents of the New England states (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont) with programs of study at out-of-state institutions for in-state tuition cost (or in some cases 25 percent more than the in-state fee). The ruling condition is that the program of study is not available in the student's own state. Information is divided into the following categories (and further broken down into state): students attending two-year colleges and institutes, students attending state colleges, students attending the six state universities and the University of Lowell and Southeastern Massachusetts University, and students in the health professions contract program. Among findings of the study were that there was an increase of almost seven percent in the number of students enrolled in the program for the academic year 1978-79, that enrollment in non-contract study programs increased by over eight percent, that enrollment is highest in the field of Pharmacy, and that 631 degree programs are being used under the program at 63 colleges and universities in the region.
