Montgomery Coll., Rockville, MD. Office of Institutional Research.
This six-part report presents a profile of the students enrolled at Montgomery College (MC) in Fall 1980. The students are described in terms of age, sex, race, residence status, country of origin, residence by postal zone, high school attendance, date of high school graduation, date of MC admission, credit hours earned at MC, class (e.g., freshman), receipt of veteran's benefits, curriculum major, credit hours of enrollment, employment status, and graduation plans. Where significant differences exist, students enrolled during the day and evening are compared, and, in some cases, Fall 1980 students are compared with Fall 1979 students. The six major sections of the paper cover: (1) MC as a whole; (2) Germantown campus; (3) Rockville campus; (4) Tacoma Park campus; (5) off-campus credit enrollment; and (6) community services non-credit enrollment. The data reveal that, during Fall 1980, 17,515 students were enrolled in credit courses; 36% were enrolled in career programs, 25% in transfer programs, and 38% in general education programs. An additional 10,877 students were enrolled in non-credit community services courses during 1980. An analysis of the trends indicates that compared to students enrolled in the early 1970's, students were more likely to be female, older than 25, and enrolled for fewer than 12 credit hours of study.
