Fall 2008 Enrollment at Iowa Colleges and Universities
Greiner, Keith
Online Submission
This is a report of the enrollment of students at Iowa colleges and universities in the Fall semester of 2008. Following are highlights of the report: (1) total enrollment increased by 1.3% at Iowa two- and four-year colleges and universities as measured in the Fall semesters of 2007 and 2008; (2) resident enrollment, including online programs, increased 0.4% during the same period with declines in the Regent and non-profit sectors; (3) resident enrollment, excluding online programs, increased 0.1%; (4) dual and Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) enrollment was 10.9% of the total in September 2008, with 95.3% of that at Iowa community colleges; (5) since 1988, the percentage of full-time enrollment has shown a modest increase at Regent and non-profit colleges and universities, with a notable decrease at community colleges. The community college decrease is attributed to several factors including an increase in dual credit and PSEO students; (6) with the decrease in full-time enrollment at community colleges, there has been an increase in part-time enrollment: a reflection of the changing needs of many students for higher education opportunities; and (7) enrollment at for-profit online universities increased 68%. (Contains 2 graphs and 4 tables.) [This report was published by the Iowa College Student Aid Commission.]
