Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Office of Institutional Research and Analysis.
March 1981 student enrollment reports were analyzed to determine selected personal and academic characteristics of students enrolled at the six Hawaii community colleges during Spring 1981. The study looked at students' sex, educational objective, major program area, full-/part-time status, total and average semester hours taken, local and permanent residence, tuition status, age, citizenship, marital status, and registration status. The analysis of the data revealed that 28,184 students were enrolled: 66% were regular students in credit programs; 1.0% were early admits or concurrent registrants in credit programs; 7% were apprentices or journeyworkers; and 26% were registrants in special programs. The number of regular students in credit programs (N=18,734) represented a 6% increase over Spring 1980, but a 3% decrease from Fall 1980. The following trends continued: (1) there were once again proportionately more women than in previous Spring semesters (50% this Spring as compared to 40% in Spring 1980); (2) there continued to be proportionately more part-time students than in previous semesters (52% in Spring 1981 as compared to 51% in Spring 1980); and (3) students continued to take fewer credits (the average load was 9.7 semester hours). Tables present data by college and program. (JP)
