This report on fall 1994 and 1995 enrollments at public, four-year colleges and universities provides a narrative summary, statistical tables and graphs, and full-time and part-time 1995 enrollment data for specific colleges and universities arranged by state. Enrollment data are broken down for the following categories of students: first-time freshmen, other undergraduates, graduate, first-professional, and non-degree seeking. For each of these student categories, enrollment data are provided by gender, race/ethnicity, Carnegie Classification of institution, and geographic regions, as well as for public historically Black institutions, and for institutions affiliated with the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and with the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges. Fall 1995 enrollment data for 29 tribal colleges is also provided. Highlights for all institutions include: 5.9 million students attended public four-year institutions in fall 1995; women comprised 54 percent of the total enrollment; 27 percent were students of color or non-resident aliens; 70 percent were enrolled full-time; and 58 percent originated from three regions: the Southeast, Great Lakes, or Mid-East areas. The strongest increases among full-time students were for first-time freshmen and non-degree seeking students. (SW)
