The purpose of this report is to describe characteristics of students enrolled at Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC) (Florida) campuses and centers during the fall 2000 term and to highlight enrollment changes. Campus and center enrollment includes any student taking a course at that location, while college-wide data give an unduplicated count of students for the term. Findings include: (1) fall term 2000 credit enrollment was 47,637, a 1.6% increase from fall 1999. Notable increases occurred for females (+859 students), full-time students (+464), former students (+1,017), and students with a matriculation code of "Upgrade Skills" (+1,599), suggesting that current students are taking additional courses and that former students are returning for job upgrade; (2) ethnic proportions changed very little: 64% Hispanic; 22% Black non-Hispanic; and 13% White non-Hispanic; (3) most credit enrollees were continuing students (66%) pursuing an Associate in Arts degree (64%); (4) fall term 2000 Postsecondary Adult Vocational (PSAV) Student enrollment was 3,246, an 18% increase from fall 1999; and (5) Continuing Workforce Education (Supplemental) enrollment was 10,210, an increase of 27%, the highest enrollment of any non-credit category.
