Fall 1980 Entering Students at the Beginning of Their Second Semester (Spring 1981). Student Flow Program, Report 13.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Kapiolani Community Coll.
As part of a student flow project designed to monitor new and transfer students who entered Kapiolani Community College in Fall 1980 for five consecutive semesters, this report summarizes data indicative of the students' academic progress and status as of Spring 1981. Specifically, the report presents a series of five discussions which examine: (1) Spring 1981 registration rates by comparing the number of Spring 1981 registrants with the total number of Fall 1980 entering students who had not completed their degrees; (2) the number of students who registered on a full-time basis; (3) the number of credits attempted and earned during Fall 1980; (4) the number of students who changed their majors during Fall 1980 and the cumulative impact of these changes on program enrollment; and (5) the number of students who graduated at the end of Fall 1980. Each of these discussions is accompanied by tables which break down data according to students' program major, sex, academic status (passing or probationary), financial aid classification, and math and English placement test scores. Major findings indicate that 67% of the students entering in Fall 1980 re-enrolled in Spring 1981 and that 62% enrolled on a full-time basis. The students attempted an average of 9.8 credit hours and completed an average of 68% of the credits attempted. The study report compares selected findings with Fall 1975 and Fall 1979 data. (JP)
