Place of Class Attendance at Nova Southeastern University: Calendar Years 1990-1994. Research and Planning Report 96-01.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
This report examined place of class attendance at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) from calendar years 1990 through 1994. The various distance models employed by NSU, which support the opportunity to offer classes at non-campus locations, were also identified in this report. During 1994, nearly two-thirds of all university students attended class on one of NSU's three South Florida campuses or at cluster locations in Broward, Dade, or Palm Beach Counties. Broward County's population grew by 10.2 percent between 1990 and 1994, while NSU enrollment in the county increased 23 percent. Dade County's population grew by 4.5 percent between 1990 and 1994, while NSU enrollment in the county increased 102 percent. Although Palm Beach County's population grew by 10.5 percent between 1990 and 1994, NSU enrollment in the county declined by 20 percent. Over 9,000 students attended one or more classes in Broward County in 1994, and nearly 80 percent of all NSU students attended class in Florida. The report also found that while cluster programs in the Tampa Bay area are expanding and constitute nearly five percent of NSU enrollment, overall enrollment in other Florida cities is declining as enrollment in South Florida increases.
