Five-Year Enrollment Projections: Fiscal Years 1984-1988. (A Supplement for the FY 1984 Capital and Operating Budgets of Montgomery Community College).
Campbell, William; And Others
Designed to aid in curriculum and facilities planning at Montgomery College (MC), this report provides projections of student enrollments for 1984 through 1988. After introducing the history of enrollment projection at MC and presenting a rationale for such efforts, chapter 1 outlines the framework for projecting enrollments using techniques of curve fitting (i.e., estimating numbers on the basis of the past trends) and estimation of yields from different components of the population. The chapter concludes by comparing the two methods and applying them to enrollments at MC. Chapter 2 presents enrollment projections for five groups as segments of the total college population: (1) high school graduates, including immediate and delayed entry students, early placement students, and private and parochial school students; (2) returning students; (3) new, older county residents within Montgomery County; (4) out-of-county and out-of-state residents; and (5) off-campus and extension credit students. After chapter 3 summarizes actual and projected enrollments by segments, chapter 4 provides credit enrollment projections by campus, semester, and day/evening attendance. Chapters 5 and 6 present estimates for full- and part-time students and for non-credit enrollments. Finally, chapter 7 summarizes actual and projected figures for credit and non-credit students combined. (HB)
