On-Campus Enrollment in Arkansas Higher Education Institutions, Fall 1982. Report 82-2.
Fall 1982 on-campus enrollment data in Arkansas colleges and universities are presented, along with a narrative description of trends. The total headcount enrollment increased 1.6 percent to a record enrollment of 72,300, and the largest increase occurred in part-time enrollment at the state-supported two-year institutions. While enrollment was increasing at both the two-year and four-year state institutions, the independent four-year institutions were experiencing declines. Out-of-state enrollment classified by current legal residence increased 550 students (10 percent). The median age of Arkansas college students, 21, has remained stable during the past 3 years. The median age of all full-time students was 20; part-time students, 27. Currently, 52.5 percent of all Arkansas college students are female. Statistical tables cover the following areas: fall on-campus headcount by student level and type of institutions, 1973-1982; number and distribution of fall full- and part-time on-campus headcount students, 1978-1982; and fall on-campus headcount of first-time enrollees 1977-1982. Data are also presented on legal residence and average student load, median age of students, post-baccalaureate and first-professional students, and enrollment levels at private colleges. (SW)
