Enrollment Projections, 1996-2005, Maryland Public Colleges and Universities.
Maryland State Higher Education Commission, Annapolis.
This report details enrollment projections for the public colleges and universities in Maryland through the year 2005. There are headcount projections for each higher education institution, with breakdowns by full- and part-time undergraduates and, as applicable, full- and part-time graduate/professional students. Projections are based on the historical relationship between the state's population and past in-state enrollments, trends in the number of high school graduates, and projected distribution of students between two- and four-year institutions. Total headcount enrollment at Maryland public colleges and universities is projected to be 15 percent higher, or an increase of 34,000 students, in 2005. Enrollments are expected to grow by 17 percent (about 19,000) at the community colleges and 13 percent (15,000) at the public four-year campuses. Full-time graduate and professional enrollments are expected to increase by 16 percent and part-time students by 12 percent. Community colleges will account for 62 percent of the projected additional undergraduates during the next 10 years. Of the anticipated additional students at four-year campuses by 2005, three-fourths will be undergraduates and of these, 71 percent will be enrolled full-time. Extensive tables detail projections for each community college and four-year institution. A description of the enrollment projection methodology is appended. (JLS)
