Five-Year Enrollment Projections, Fiscal Years 1981-1985. (A Supplement to the FY 1981 Capital and Operating Budgets of Montgomery Community College).
Wenckowski, Charlene; Armstrong, David F.
Enrollment projections for Montgomery College (MC) during the fiscal years 1981 through 1985 are outlined and graphically illustrated in this report. Chapter I details the methodology of the projection analysis, in which varying enrollment predictions, based on alternative assumptions, are matched with the projections derived from a curve-fitting technique in order to provide the most likely picture of future trends. Chapter II presents the results of this process and the data sources for the following segments of MC enrollment: high school graduates, out-of-county and out-of-state residents, returning matriculated students, older county residents, and off-campus or extension students. Chapter III provides a composite of the values for each segment and a comparison of the college's anticipated growth with county population projections. Chapter IV outlines the fiscal year credit enrollments by campus, semester, and day/evening attendance. Chapters V through VII present full- and part-time enrollments, credit and non-credit enrollments, and a summary of full-time equivalent enrollments. Assumptions determined in the analysis include a no-growth yield rate for graduates of most area high schools, increases in the number of high school graduates delaying entrance into college, and increases in the enrollment rate of adults, returning matriculated students, and out-of-county residents.
