Data are presented on a series of tables summarizing enrollment trends and the personal characteristics of the 20,286 regular students enrolled in credit programs at the Hawaii community colleges during spring 1982. The tables cover: (1) headcount enrollment in regular credit and special programs; (2) headcount enrollment by campus for the years 1975-76 through 1981-82; (3) selected student characteristics (i.e., sex, educational objectives, major, attendance status, semester hours taken, residence, tuition status, age, citizenship, and registration status); (4) student profiles in terms of these characteristics for fall 1979 through spring 1982; and (5) distribution of majors by campus. The data provided indicate, among other findings, that the regularly enrolled students constituted 78% of the total spring 1982 enrollment. The average student semester hours (SSH) taken decreased from 9.7 in spring 1981 to 9.5 in spring 1982, which may be attributed to the increasing proportion of part-time students and the decline in average SSH taken by these students. Average semester hours taken by full-time students had held steady at 13.8 for six semesters. Demographic data reveal that the median age of the students was 22.6 years, 50.2% of the students were male, and 76.9% were pursuing an associate degree. General and pre-professional majors comprised 38% of the enrollment, while vocational education majors made up another 45%. (KL)
