A Survey of JCCC Credit Students in Off-Campus Sites.
Conklin, Karen A.
This study of students attending credit classes at selected Johnson County Community College (JCCC, Kansas) off-campus locations was conducted in the fall of 1998. The purpose of the study was to assist the Board of Trustees in planning and making decisions for the future educational needs of Johnson County residents. Responses were obtained from 349 students in 28 classes. Findings include: (1) students enrolled in off-campus credit classes are more likely to be female and older than the overall student body; (2) 34% of enrolled students lived outside Johnson County, compared with 25% of the overall student body; (3) 45% of the students enrolled in an off-campus course were concurrently taking classes at the main campus; (4) at least two-thirds of the students rated the services, cost, parking, scheduling, and location of the off-campus site as good or excellent; (5) 66% of the respondents requested World Wide Web registration on site; (6) one in three desired counseling, advising, career planning, and financial aid applications via the Web; and (7) half of the students reported being aware of the availability of financial aid for off-campus classes. Appended are the list of classes surveyed, the survey instrument, and correspondence sent to the instructors. (CAK)
