This report presents findings from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System's (IPEDS) Fall Enrollment Survey from 1986 to 1994. IPEDS collects enrollment data from all postsecondary institutions eligible to participate in Title IV financial aid programs although the data in this report pertain only to institutions accredited at the higher education level by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Fall enrollment data are reported by level of student (undergraduate, graduate, first-professional), attendance status (full- or part-time), sex, and race/ethnicity. From 1986 to 1990, racial/ethnic enrollment were collected biennially. Since 1990, the race/ethnicity data have been collected annually. In the fall of 1994, enrollment among white undergraduates declined, while enrollment for other racial/ethnic groups increased. Women continued to increase their total share of enrollment. Full-time enrollment stayed about the same, while part-time enrollment dropped slightly. Four-year institutions saw a stable enrollment while the number of students at two-year schools dropped. The third year in a row. (JPB)
