North Carolina Community College System Spring Statistical Report, 1999-00.
North Carolina Community Coll. System, Raleigh.
This document contains two tables of information compiled from spring 1999-00 registration records submitted by each North Carolina community college. The first table summarizes the number of persons enrolled in each program in each college. Curriculum programs are categorized as Associate, Diploma, Certificate, or Transition. Extension programs include basic skills, community service, and JTPA, among others. The second table uses the same categories, but summarizes the annualized full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment in each program in each college. An annualized FTE is representative of the amount of time a "typical" full-time student attends class during a given report year. Several part-time students would only constitute one FTE. The full-time equivalent was developed to standardize reporting and is used as the basis for the allocation of state funds to the colleges. FTE for each semester is calculated by dividing the number of student hours in membership for that 16-week semester by 512. A curriculum annualized FTE is defined as student enrollment in 16 hours of class, shop, or laboratory instruction per week for 16-weeks for two semesters. The extension annualized FTE for each term is calculated by dividing the number of student hours in membership for that term by 688. (PGS)
