Annual Student Profile Summary Data on Unduplicated Enrollments for the Academic Year 1985-86. Research Report No. 86-30.
This enrollment summary provides collegewide and campus-specific data for Miami-Dade Community College (Florida) for 1981-82 through 1985-86. All data are for unduplicated headcounts by the three major variables of credit/non-credit enrollments, semester credits, and credit load. These major variables are matched against factors of ethnicity, degree types, full-/part-time status, age, and residency. Among the trends highlighted in this profile are the following: (1) the declining trend in student enrollment has reversed itself, albeit modestly (0.7%); (2) credit equivalents have increased by 37.8% over the previous 5 years; (3) nearly 50% of the credit equivalent increases in 1985-86 were due to foundation and grant activities on North Campus; (4) over 5 years, occupational credits declined by 18.7%, while occupational credit equivalents exceeded the 5-year peak of 1981-82; (5) steep declines in college preparatory credits were attributable to the removal of English as a Second Language credits in 1982-83; (6) the semester credit to credit-equivalent ratio in 1985-86 was 92.7:7.3 of credits generated college-wide; (7) Black non-Hispanic enrollments decreased 2.3% over the 5-year period; and (8) Hispanic student enrollments rose to 49.2% of the total student population in 1985-86 and carried the heaviest average credit load.
