Young, Michael E., Comp.
This report summarizes data on fall (1983) enrollments based on a survey by the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grand Colleges of its member institutions (n=132). These institutions include both individual universities, which may or may not be comprised of a central campus and smaller branch campuses, and university systems of multiple major campuses. Study highlights note that member institutions showed steady enrollment as compared to the previous year, that first-time freshmen enrollments were down, that growing institutions cited increases in transfer and adult students, and that shrinking institutions cited drops in the number of high school graduates and increasing tuition as factors. Data presented in the tables indicate full-time and part-time head count enrollments during academic year 1982-83 and 1983-84; 2-year comparisons by enrollment category; total enrollment at the 10 largest campuses; undergraduate enrollment at the 10 largest campuses; graduate enrollment at the 10 largest campuses; first professional enrollment at the 10 largest campuses; first-time freshmen enrollment at the 10 largest campuses; and institutions reporting increasing or decreasing enrollments. A final table shows fall enrollments for specific member institutions. (JB)
