Enrollment Projections, 2000-2009: Maryland Public Colleges and Universities.
This document presents enrollment projections for Maryland public colleges and universities through the year 2009. There are headcount projections for each higher education institution, with breakdowns by full- and part-time undergraduates and full- and part-time graduate/professional students. Full-time equivalent (FTE) and full-time day equivalent (FTDE) projections were calculated by applying a mathematical formula to the headcount figures. Separate but similar linear regression analyses were used to project enrollments at community colleges and public four-year institutions. Results indicate that total headcount enrollment at Maryland public colleges and universities in 2009 is projected to grow by 18 percent. The growth rates of full- and part-time undergraduates are projected to be sharply different at public 2- and 4-year institutions over the next 10 years. Full-time graduate and professional enrollment is projected to increase by 15 percent by 2009, while part-time enrollments will rise by 32 percent. FTE and FTDE enrollments at community colleges are expected to increase by 21 and 20 percent, respectively, above the growth rate projected last year. (SM)
