Brown, Laurence A., Jr.
An examination of enrollment data for 1973-74 through 1982-83 at Lane Community College (LCC) reveals the following trends: (1) the total 1982-83 full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment was slightly less than one-third above that for 1973-74; (2) the increase of non-credit FTE over the 10-year period was somewhat greater than that for credit programs (44% vs. 29%); (3) unduplicated student headcount increased about 20%, though the increase among first-time students was only about 9%; (4) while male enrollments increased only 2%, female enrollments increased by 45%; (4) the number of students 21 years old or under increased less than 2%, while those over 61 increased by more than 120%; (5) the number of minority group students increased over the decade, but remained relatively small; (6) full-time enrollments increased by 16%, while part-time enrollments increased nearly 27%; (7) enrollments increased by one-third among students taking 1 to 3 units, remained about the same for those taking 4 to 9 units, increased by 14% for those taking 10 to 15 units, and increased by 50% for those taking 16 or more units; (8) in terms of high schools attended, the greatest increase was seen in out-of-district enrollments; and (9) out-of-state enrollments increased by 175%. The study report provides graphs, charts and tables showing enrollment trends, and provides a detailed analysis of these trends. (AYC)
