Fall 1982 registration data for Hawaii's community colleges were analyzed to determine the course-taking patterns of different groups of student majors and the client-serving patterns of different academic departments. Major findings reveal that students seeking a certificate were taking 56% of their course work in vocational courses; those seeking an associate in arts degree (AA) were taking 88% of their work in general education; and those seeking an associate in science degree (AS) were taking 54% of their work in vocational courses. The courses taken by certificate and AS students were generally numbered less than 100, while AA students took 75% of their course work in courses numbered 100 or higher. As in previous years, liberal arts majors took the bulk of their course work (88%) in general education courses, and vocational majors took 56% of their course work in vocational education areas. Vocational students continued to generate the bulk of the vocational student semester hours (SSH's), and to generate an increasing proportion of the SSH's in general education courses. Other findings indicated that the proportion of SSH's generated by general education was slightly less than two-thirds of the total, and that 87% of the SSH's taken by early admits and 63% taken by concurrent registrants were in general education courses. Data tables and charts comprise the bulk of the report, providing combined and institutional statistics and illustrating trends. (HB)
