Kentucky College and University Enrollments. Fall 1988.
Kentucky State Council on Higher Education, Frankfort.
Data on enrollments in Kentucky's public and independent higher education institutions, including two-year colleges, business colleges, and seminaries, are presented. Enrollments are reported variously by headcount, student classification (year or degree or enrollment status), institution type, trends during the period 1985-88, full-time-equivalency, black enrollment, residency status, total credit-hours, on-campus credit-hours, off-campus credit-hours, and degree field. In some tables, data are given for each institution; in others, data are reported by institution type. Among the facts emerging from the enrollment reports are these: state-supported institutions' headcount enrollments are 6% black, in comparison with the state's 7% black population; state-supported institutions' enrollments are primarily resident students, while independent institutions enroll a large proportion of out-of-state students; 24% of students in state-supported institutions are undecided on field of study, and 8% are non-degree students; one-fourth of community college students are not pursuing a degree, and approximately the same proportion are undecided about field of study. The undergraduate field in greatest demand at state-supported universities is business; the graduate field in greatest demand at state-supported universities is education; and the field in greatest demand among community college students is liberal arts and sciences.
