New England Regional Student Program Enrollment Report 1976-1977.
Burns, Jeanne M., Comp.
Enrollment statistics for the 1976-1977 academic year in the New England Regional Student Program are 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 only the in-state tuition upon admission. Benefits, eligibility, participating colleges, and application information are explained. Statistics are included in the following categories: the non-contract program, the health professions contract program, state participation, enrollment at two-year colleges and institutes, enrollment at New England state colleges, and enrollment at the six state universities and the University of Lowell and Southeastern Massachusetts University. States participating in the program include Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Among findings of the study were that there was an overall increase in enrollment of over seven percent for the academic year 1976-1977, that enrollment in the health contract programs increased 12 percent, that 593 degree study programs were offered for regional enrollment by public colleges and universities, and that enrollment is highest in health-related courses and in such fields as forestry, business administration, and library science.
