The researchers examined part-time enrollment within public two-year, degree-granting community colleges by the degree of urbanization classifications of city, suburban, town, and rural for fall 2003 and 2005. Findings indicate no statistical differences in part-time enrollment between city and suburban institutions. No statistical differences were identified between town and rural institutions. City and suburban institutions were found to have statistically higher percentages of part-time enrollment than their town and rural counterparts. No statistical changes in percentages of part-time enrollment were identified when comparing fall 2003 and 2005. Implications of these findings are discussed. Suggestions for future research are identified. (Contains 6 tables.)
