Enrollment Projections, University of Hawai'i Community Colleges, Fall 1999 to Fall 2005.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu.
This report presents information on actual and projected headcount enrollment for the University of Hawaii Community Colleges (UHCC). Highlights include: (1) total headcount for the UHCC measured 24,909 in Fall 1998, virtually unchanged from the previous fall; (2) enrollment peaked at 27,905 in Fall 1994, and then declined 10.8% over the next three years; (3) enrollment of first-time students may improve over the next few years due to increases in the number of high school seniors; (4) enrollment of continuing/returning students has declined steadily since Fall 1994; (5) transfer enrollment has been forecast to follow the same trend as first-time students; and (6) headcount enrollment at the UHCC is expected to increase modestly through the projection period, at an average annual rate of 1%. The enrollment projections are based on unduplicated headcounts of full-time and part-time students enrolled in credit courses. Included are classified students enrolled in liberal arts or vocational programs as well as unclassified students. Unlike previous reports, these projections also include projected headcounts in continuing education credit courses offered by Honolulu Community College, beginning Fall 1999. Historical data are included to facilitate comparison and analysis. Appended are historical and projected enrollment of Hawaii public high school seniors by school district. (JJL)
