Los Rios Community College District. Spring 1999 Student Profile, Based upon First Census Data.
This report, the second in a series based upon the official Spring First Census, provides data on student demographics and enrollment trends from spring 1994 to spring 1999 for the three colleges in California's Los Rios Community College District: American River College, Cosumnes River College, and Sacramento City College. For the first time, the report includes separate demographic profiles for students at Folsom Lake and El Dorado, two centers that are part of Cosumnes River College. Following a brief introduction, data are presented on total district enrollment; district weekly student contact hours; district enrollment by ethnicity, gender, age group, and by day or evening attendance status; average student unit load; and student status (new, transfer, returning, special admit, or continuing). Findings include the following: (1) total district enrollment increased by 5% between spring 1998 and spring 1999; (2) enrollment patterns by gender, ethnicity, and age remained relatively constant between 1995 and 1999; (3) the proportion of full-time students increased by 6.7% between 1995 and 1999; (4) the vast majority of students are continuing students; and (5) Folsom Lake and El Dorado have a higher proportion of female students, white students, students under 18, and students 40 and over compared with student enrollment district-wide.
