Enrollment Projections, University of Hawai'i, Fall 1998 to Fall 2004. Revised.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu.
This report provides a summary of enrollment projections for the University of Hawaii (UH) system, which includes three university and seven community college campuses. The projections are statistical extrapolations of current trends in enrollment by campus, based on unduplicated headcounts of full-time and part-time students enrolled in regular session day or extended-daycredit courses. Included are students in programs leading to a bachelor's degree or higher, students in programs leading to associate degrees or certificates, and unclassified students. Historical data are included in the tables and charts to facilitate comparison and analysis. They were compiled from the Student Enrollment Reports, the Academic Crossover Studies and the Course Registration Reports. Findings show that the enrollment of regular students for the University of Hawaii measured 45,251 in Fall 1997, a 3.9% decline from Fall 1996 and the third consecutive year of decrease. For Fall 1998, UH system enrollment is forecast to decline slightly, to just over 45,000. This projection is somewhat lower than that made last year and takes into account the recent enrollment decline across the UH system. Recommendations are made in response to findings that the UH system will experience little or no overall growth in enrollments. (JJL)
