Annual Student Profile Summary Data on Unduplicated Headcount Enrollment for the Academic Year 1984-85. Research Report 85-34.
This enrollment summary provides collegewide and campus data for Miami-Dade Community College for the 5-year period from 1980-81 to 1984-85. Summary data are presented for three major variables: credit/non-credit enrollments, semester credits, and credit load. These variables are tabulated by enrollment elements of interest, such as ethnic membership, student declaration of degree type, age, full-/part-time status, and residency. Highlighted trends include the following: (1) all measures of productivity showed a steady decline over the past 5 years; i.e., student enrollments dropped 7.1%, semester credits dropped 11.4%, and average credit load decreased by 0.7 units; (2) dramatic increases in non-credit enrollments and credit equivalents were attributed to enhanced efforts in campus centers for business, industrial, and professional development; recruitment and expanded services; corporate contracts; and course marketing; (3) ratios of males to females remained unchanged across years at approximately 4.5:5.5 collegewide; (4) there was a greater decline in the number of full-time than part-time enrollments over the 5-year period; and (5) the number of new freshmen declined by 30.4% collegewide.
