Data tables summarize selected personal and academic characteristics of students enrolled at the seven Hawaii community colleges in the Fall 1979 semester, focusing on classified and unclassified students in credit programs. Registration in various community college offerings numbered 28,781. Of these, 72% were regular students enrolled in credit programs; 1% were early admits or concurrent registrants; 7% were apprentices or journeyworkers in non-credit programs; and 20% were in special programs. Compared to Fall 1978, headcount enrollment had increased by only 0.3%. Several trends which emerged in previous studies continued: there were more women and part-time students (both numerically and proportionately) than in previous years; full-time equivalent/headcount ratios continued to decline; and part-time students continued to take lighter credit loads. There appeared to be little change in the nature of the students in terms of the following characteristics: place of residence, percentages of first-time vs. continuing students, marital status, and age. (The numbers of students in the older age groups seemed to have stabilized, however.) The percentage of liberal arts majors decreased and the percentage of vocational majors increased only by 1%, but the unclassified students comprised 2% more of the total enrollment, representing a 32% increase in their total numbers.
