Analysis of Spring 1996 Student Enrollment, Pima Community College.
Pima Community Coll., Tucson, AZ. Office of Research and Planning.
This report summarizes spring 1996 student enrollment in credit classes at Pima Community College (PCC) (AZ). The number of students (head count) and full-time student equivalents (FTSE) are categorized by campus and day/extended day status. Comparisons with head count and FTSE data from the previous four spring semesters are displayed in tables and graphs. The spring 1996 head count was 2% more and FTSE enrollment 1% more than the previous spring's enrollment. The greatest growth in terms of percentage gain was at the Desert Vista Campus (73 students for 4% and 53 FTSE for 8%). The greatest growth in actual numbers was at the West Campus (247 students and 58 FTSE). The enrollment for spring 1996 represents a shift compared to previous springs: a reversal in the downward drift of enrollment. Despite the increase, however, enrollments are still below spring 1994 levels. The enrollment shift for spring is small but it does indicate a change in direction. That change reflects the continued growth at Desert Vista Campus, the regaining of enrollment at Community Campus, and the increase of enrollment at West Campus. It is premature to state that the enrollment gains of spring 1996 are the start of a trend. (JA)
