At the close of the 1996-97 academic year, Florida's Pensacola Junior College (PJC) undertook an analysis of enrollment to determine trends from the previous academic year. Results of the analysis included the following: (1) PJC ended the year with 6,644 fundable full-time equivalent (FFTE) students, a drop of 6.6%, or 470.5 FFTE, from 1995-96; (2) unduplicated fundable headcount enrollment for 1996-97 was 22,520, a decrease of 4.8% from 1995-96; (3) the 6.6% FFTE loss represented a substantial worsening of the 4.2% decline between 1994-95 and 1995-96; (4) most of the enrollment losses were in the college credit area of advanced and professional (A&P) and postsecondary vocational (PSV) programs, with A&P experiencing a decrease of 7.9% (n=-283) and PSV showing a loss of 3% (n=-43); and (5) although the area of college prep experienced a 23.1% increase (n=65) in FFTE between 1995-96 and 1996-97, adult basic education and general education development (GED) showed a substantial drop in FFTE of 18.9% (n=-128). A discussion of factors contributing to the trends is included. Seven data tables are attached. (HAA)
