Undergraduate Enrollment

Enrollment status

According to the most recent data, women are more likely than men to be enrolled on a part-time basis. (See appendix table 2-6.) Students of both sexes are more likely to attend college part time when they attend public as opposed to private institutions. Part-time enrollment is greater in public than in private institutions for all racial/ethnic groups. In public institutions, Hispanics are more likely to attend college part time than members of other racial/ethnic groups. There was no difference in full- versus part-time enrollment among students with and without disabilities in 1996. (See appendix table 2-5.)
