The Academic Year Report provides a snapshot of funding, facilities, staffing, and enrollments in Washington community and technical colleges for 1998-99. The report also addresses student outcomes and the most frequently asked questions related to expenditures, personnel and students. In 1998-99, the Washington system served 457,580 total students and enrolled 147,845 full-time students (annual FTE's) each quarter. Of the FTE's, 46% were enrolled for workforce training and 38% in preparation for transfer to four-year institutions. The student body consisted of 27% minorities and 56% female students; both groups were more represented in the two-year colleges than the state population as a whole. The tuition and fees charged of full-time students was $1,515 and about one-third of eligible students received need-based aid. The system employed 11,025 FTE staff. System expenditures totaled $691.4 million and capital appropriations totaled $229.7 million.
