Enrollment Report, Fall 1990. University of Nevada System.
Fox, Warren H.; Steinberg, Karen J.
This report presents, in charts and graphs, Fall 1990 enrollment statistics for the University of Nevada System (UNS). Data are organized under the following topics: headcount, full-time equivalents, enrollment trends, gender, racial-ethnic designation, age, and headcount for Summer Session 1990. The data indicate a 12.1 percent growth since Fall 1989 in number of students enrolled in the system, with a 14.6 percent increase in the community college enrollments and a 9.3 percent increase in the university enrollments. Systemwide, 70% of the student body is composed of part-time students. However, the enrollment of part-time students at universities fell from 55 percent in 1989 to 49 percent in 1990, while part-time student percentages at community colleges remained at 89 percent. Fifty-six percent of all students were female, the same proportion as 1989. In addition, 79.9 percent of students systemwide were white, 1.4 percent nonresident alien, 3.2 percent non-specified, and 15.7 percent minority. Student age data collected in Fall 1989 found that 30.3 percent of students were 22 to 29 years old. The next two largest groups were 18 to 21 year olds and 30 to 39 year olds. (JB)
