Enrollment Projections, 2002-2011: Maryland Public Colleges and Universities.
This document presents enrollment projections for the public colleges and universities in Maryland through the year 2011. These are headcount projections for each higher education institution, with breakdowns by full-and part-time undergraduates and, as applicable, full- and part-time graduate and professional students. Full-time equivalent (FTE) and full-time day equivalent (FTDE) projections were calculated by applying a mathematical formula to the headcount figures. Projections were also developed for state-eligible FTE noncredit continuing education enrollments at the community colleges. Projections suggest that the total headcount enrollment at Maryland public institutions of higher education will increase by 24%, more than 56,000 students, by 2011. This is 5,000 students below the forecast for the 2001-2010 period the previous year, reflecting the anticipated slower growth of higher education enrollments in the post baby boom echo period. Total enrollments during the next 10 years are expected to grow by 16% at the community colleges and 30% at the public four-year college and university campuses. At two-year colleges, full-time students are projected to soar by 29% and part-time enrollments are expected to increase by 10%. In contrast, at four-year institutions, full-time undergraduates are expected to increase by 13%, and part-time enrollments are expected to experience a 52% increase. (SLD)
