Student Characteristics and Enrollment Trends, Fall 2000.
Cuesta College's (California) Five-year Student Characteristics and Enrollment Trends (1996-2000) report provides tables and figures that show student demography and enrollment status. Tables 1 through 11 present data for the entire college. Table 1 shows that enrollment at Cuesta College continues to increase and is now at an all-time high of 9,732 students--a 5.5% increase from fall 1999. Continuing students constitute just less than 50% of the student body. The remaining students are new, transferring in, or returning to Cuesta. Table 2 indicates a slight increase in the proportion of students taking only day classes (43.4% in 2000 compared to 41.8% in 1999). Accordingly, the proportion of students enrolled in both day and evening classes has decreased from 36.3% in 1999 to 34.0% in 2000. Table 11 shows the educational objective for attending Cuesta College as stated by students. The information regarding goals and objectives is obtained from the student's original application for admission to Cuesta. Tables 12-21 show student characteristics and enrollment trends by Cuesta's 3 educational regions: North County campus, San Luis Obispo campus, and South County campus. Both the North County campus and the San Luis Obispo campus showed impressive growth between 1999 and 2000. (Contains 21 tables and 29 figures. Appendices show enrollment history from 1965 to 2000, the number of students residing in the various parts of the County, and a Venn diagram form for the number of students attending each individual Cuesta campus.)
