The Commission to Study the Future of Community Colleges in Kentucky was established in 1988 to review the accomplishments of the Kentucky Community College System (KCCS), to assess its current status, and to provide direction for the KCCS towards the year 2000. Developed as part of a collection of reports on the KCCS for use by the Commission in its work, this report examines aspects of access to education. Specifically, this report provides information, analysis, and data in the following areas: (1) geographical location of the 14 colleges; (2) registration fees for full- and part-time students; (3) open admissions policies; (4) admission to technical (career) programs; (5) specific program offerings; (6) enrollment in the KCCS and enrollment influences; (7) enrollment by degree type; (8) student population characteristics; (9) student academic characteristics; (10) extended campus offerings and enrollments; (11) program graduates; (12) instruction and faculty development; (13) academic advising; (14) student development (support) services; and (14) developmental (remedial) education. The report concludes with a list of 13 questions for discussion by Commission members relating to admissions policies and other aspects of access and access with excellence. Tables listing career programs offered at each of the colleges, detailing enrollment data by program type, gender, and ethnic group, and providing graduation rates by program, are included. (PAA)
