Enrollment Forecasts 1997-2010. Texas Institutions of Higher Education. Study Paper 27. Revised.

This report contains enrollment projections for public higher education in Texas from 1997 through 2010. Based on current population projections and recent patterns in college and university attendance, enrollment in Texas institutions is expected to reach one million by the year 2005. Enrollment in public universities is expected to increase approximately 3.14 percent from 1995 to 2000, 3.99 percent from 2000 to 2005, and 3.49 percent from 2005 to 2010. One of the highest priorities of Texas higher education is to increase minority representation through enrollment and retention. It is projected that by the year 2010, Hispanic and Black enrollment rates will be at parity with Anglo/Other rates for 1995. By 2010, the ethnic mix of students enrolled in Texas higher education will approximate the ethnic mix for the general population of Texans in the same age range. Tables provide detail on: fall headcount enrollment forecasts at all institutions of higher education and at Texas public universities; enrollment forecasts and forecasted changes for community colleges and technical colleges; fall resident enrollment by age and ethnicity for public universities community colleges, and technical colleges; and fall enrollment by resident and nonresident status for public universities, community colleges, and technical colleges.
