Full-Time 4-Year Enrollment
- The First 2 Years
- After the First 2 Years
About 75 percent of all students were enrolled full time in 1993, continuing a pattern that had been stable for over a decade. Women and underrepresented minority students were as likely to be attending full time as white males, and over 80 percent of Asians and foreign students were enrolled full time. Women were 52 percent of the students enrolled in 1993 on a full-time basis at 4-year-and-beyond institutions. That year they made up 54 percent of total enrollment at such institutions, up from 51 percent of this group in 1980. (See appendix table 3-5.)
Minorities and foreign students made up 26 percent of full-time enrollment at baccalaureate-level-and-beyond colleges; underrepresented minorities, 18 percent, an increase from 14 percent in 1980.
