A July 1995 report by Florida's Miami-Dade Community College examined reasons for a decline in enrollment among first-time-in-college students, including non-Florida residents, from fall 1990 to fall 1994. This report looks at the change in credits generated by non-Florida residents and foreign students over the same period. Study findings included the following: (1) when comparing the 1990/91 academic year to 1994/95, 55,887 fewer credits were generated overall by non-Florida residents, representing a loss of almost 1,400 full-time equivalent students; (2) over the same period, Florida residents registered an increase of 1,509 credits; (3) with respect to the students' immigration code, Visa students accounted for 11,526 of the total credit loss, while there was a gain of 25,668 credits generated by students with Resident Alien status; (3) with respect to the decline of credits among Visa students, the largest decreases were found for students from Peru at -85, Colombia also at -85, Jamaica at -61, the Bahamas at -56, and Panama at -54; and (4) among Resident Alien students, the largest increases were generated by students from Haiti at 831, Nicaragua at 552, the Dominican Republic at 254, and Peru at 191.
