Characteristics of students in 15 Pennsylvania community colleges (n=704) and 16 two-year proprietary colleges (n=317) were compared. In both groups, technical students were overwhelmingly white; the community colleges' population was 69.5% male, 30.5% female; in proprietary schools, 43.2% male, 56.8% female. Females had higher grade point averages and worked fewer hours. (Contains 43 references.) (JOW)
