Harding, Martin L.
Fall 1983 enrollment trends for public four-year institutions in Washington State are presented in narrative and statistical formats. To address the question of where Washington's college students come from, data are provided on high school graduates, transfer students, former students, and distribution by county. Total enrollments and enrollments for six state universities are provided for entering students. Enrollment percentages by university are presented by class level (lower division, upper division, graduate or professional) for selected years (1977, 1979, 1981, and 1983). The age distribution of students for these years is also indicated. For each university, the number and percentage of students from within the state are presented, along with the total number from out-of-state and from six specific states, and the total number from Canada and from other foreign countries. Also provided are data on: the number of high school graduates and college entrants for 39 Washington counties, and participation rates of Washington graduates in community colleges and four-year colleges, by county. Profiles for each of the six universities indicate the counties from which freshmen come, representation by county for the total student body, and the Washington two- and four-year colleges from which students transfer.
