University and Community College System of Nevada. Enrollment Report, Fall 1993.
Nevada Univ. and Community Coll. System, Reno. Office of the Chancellor.
In fall 1993, the University and Community College System of Nevada (UCCSN) enrolled 65,124 state-supported students, and an additional 12,976 students in self-supported programs such as continuing education, correspondence courses, community services, and contract education programs. In fall 1993, for the first time in 9 years, student full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment in the UCCSN decreased, with both FTE and headcount enrollments reduced by 1.1% over fall 1992. The enrollment decline followed significant funding cuts for the system, which led to systemwide staffing cuts. Systemwide, state-supported fall headcount enrollment increased by 60.4% from 1984 to 1993, an increase of over 24,500 students. Total enrollment in the system's four community colleges increased nearly 65%, from 20,197 students in 1984 to 33,305 students in 1993. The community college increase accounted for 53% of total enrollment growth in the UCCSN over this period. The majority of UCCSN students attend on a part-time basis, with only 31% of 1993 students attending full-time. At community colleges, 87% of the students attend part-time, while 49% of university students attend part-time. Over half (56%) of the students attending UCCSN campuses are women, and 75% are white. The total number of non-resident students enrolled in the UCCSN in 1993 was approximately 6,000, including 1,228 students who enrolled under the system's Good Neighbor Policy. The bulk of the report consists of charts and tables showing enrollment trends by college. (ECC)
