Student Enrollment Report Community Colleges, Spring 1980.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Office of Institutional Research and Analysis.
February 1980 Student Enrollment Reports were analyzed to determine selected personal and academic characteristics of students enrolled at the six Hawaii community colleges during Spring 1980. The analysis revealed that 26,029 students were enrolled; 68% were regular students in credit programs, 0.5% were early admits or concurrent registrants enrolled in credit programs, 7% were apprentices or journeyworkers, and 24% were registrants in special programs. Data on the 17,730 regular (classified and unclassified) students in credit programs revealed an increase of 15 students over Spring 1979, but a 7% decrease from Fall 1979. The data indicate a continuation of the following trends: (1) again there were proportionately more women than in previous Spring semesters--women comprised 49% of the students; (2) there continued to be proportionately more part-time students than in previous semesters--51% this Spring as compared to 47% in Spring 1979; (3) students continued to take fewer credits--the average student semester hours taken was 9.8; and (4) again there were proportionately more vocational students, with vocational majors comprising 46% and liberal arts majors comprising 41% of the enrollment. The study revealed little change in mean age (25.6 years), percentage of continuing vs. first-time students (70%), and residence patterns. Tables present systemwide data. (Author/AYC)
