Fall 2005 College and University Headcounts in Connecticut. Report
Connecticut Department of Higher Education (NJ1)
Total headcount enrollment at Connecticut's colleges and universities reached 174,275 students in fall 2005, a fourth straight record year. The total is an increase of 1,535 students (or 0.9%) over fall 2004. While this is the eighth consecutive year of enrollment growth, the rate of increase is decelerating. The average annual growth in the three years since 2002 is only 0.9 percent, nearly one-third as slow as the average annual growth rate between 1998 and 2002 of 2.4 percent. This report analyzes fall 2005 headcount enrollment as reported by Connecticut's public and independent colleges and universities. It presents data and historical trends on students enrolled for credit at 47 institutions,1 with details on attendance status, level and sector of higher education. A subsequent report will have 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 2005 Final Enrollment: Connecticut Colleges and Universities is appended.
