Fall 2006 College and University Headcount in Connecticut. Report
Connecticut Department of Higher Education (NJ1)
Total headcount enrollment at Connecticut's colleges and universities reached 176,560 students in fall 2006, a fifth consecutive record year. The increase of 2,287 students (or 1.3%) over fall 2005 is the ninth year of enrollment growth, but the rate of increase is slowing. The average annual growth rate since 2003 was 1.0 percent, less than half the average growth for the period 1999 through 2002 of 2.4 percent. The moderation in enrollment growth is more pronounced at the public institutions--0.9 percent for 2003-2006 compared to 3.2 percent for 1999-2002. This report analyzes fall 2006 headcount enrollment at Connecticut's public and independent colleges and universities. It presents data and historical trends on students enrolled for credit at 47 institutions, with details on attendance status, level and sector of higher education. A subsequent report will provide demographic detail on race/ethnicity, gender, age, residence, etc., and full-time-equivalent (FTE) enrollment. All references to years in this report are to enrollment in the fall of that year. Fall 2006 Final Enrollment: Connecticut Colleges and Universities is appended. (Contains 2 tables, 7 figures and 3 footnotes.)
