Analysis of Fall 1995 Student Enrollment.
Pima Community Coll., Tucson, AZ. Office of Institutional Research.
This report summarizes fall 1995 student enrollment in credit classes on the official census date (45th day of classes) at Pima Community College (PCC) in Arizona. The number of students (head count) and full-time student equivalents (FTSE) are categorized by campus and the time of day students attend classes. Comparisons with head count and FTSE data from the previous four years are displayed in tables and graphs. Time of day of attendance is compared to fall 1994 data. Figures indicate that PCC fall enrollments increased between 1991 and 1992, but have steadily declined thereafter, with district enrollment decreasing by 2,309 students between fall 1992 and fall 1995. The five-year pattern varied from campus to campus. An enrollment management plan at one campus that increased class size, reduced the number of class offerings, and changed some classes from credit to non-credit status is cited as a possible contributing factor for the decline. A noteworthy trend is the relatively greater decline in extended day enrollment (enrollment in any class taught after 5:00 p.m. or with a whole starting day of Friday, Saturday, or Sunday) throughout the district as compared to day enrollment.
