Veteran Enrollment. Analytical Studies Research Report, 80-9.
Tables and graphs are presented summarizing the enrollment of students receiving Veterans Administration (VA) benefits at the Maricopa County Community College District from Fall 1972 through Fall 1980. The report provides Spring and Fall and day and evening enrollment figures for the district as a whole and for each of the six colleges in the district. An analysis of the data reveals that veteran enrollment began increasing in Spring 1973, was high from Spring 1976 through Spring 1977, and then began to decrease until it reached a low of 56,898 headcount enrollment and 26,637 full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment in Spring 1980. Veteran enrollment accounted for approximately 9% of the district headcount and 11% of district FTE enrollment in Fall 1980. Headcount/FTE ratios were generally lower for veterans than for all students, reflecting the higher number of full-time students among veterans. Veterans accounted for 4% to 25% of the FTE student enrollment at the various colleges in the district. (AYC)
