Los Rios Community College District Fall 2000 Student Profile, Based upon First Census Data.
This is the eleventh in a series of Los Rios Community College District (LRCCD) (California) fall student profiles. These annual summaries provide the district and its colleges--American River College (ARC), Cosumnes River College (CRC), and Sacramento City College (SCC)--with data on student demographics and enrollment trends. The Fall 2000 Student Profile includes a brief analysis of the separate demographic data for the Folsom Lake and El Dorado centers, which are part of Cosumnes River College. This report presents student enrollment data and Weekly Student Contact Hours (WSCH) based on official Fall First Census report. Highlights include: (1) enrollment has increased substantially each year since fall 1996; through fall 1999, the increase totaled 21%; (2) the proportions by ethnicity remained stable, as did enrollment by gender; (3) the trend toward an older student body at Los Rios continues, with 22% of all students enrolled 40-and-over; however, students who are 18 through 20 remain the largest proportions of the district's enrollment, at 25% this fall; and (4) attendance patterns have shifted over the past five years, with fewer students taking courses offered during the day only or during the evening only than in 1995.
