POLICY CODE: LD
TO: Superintendents of Schools
FROM: J. Duke Albanese, Commissioner
DATE: July 31, 2000
RE: 1999 - 2000 Maine Postsecondary Enrollments; 1998 - 1999 Maine Postsecondary Completions; 1999 - 2000 Maine Colleges and Universities - Institutional Characteristics
Enclosed please find three (3) documents of particular interest. The first document provides enrollment data for each of Maine’s public and private degree-granting institutions. Divided into three parts, Part I displays enrollments for the 1999-2000 academic year and compares these figures with 1998-1999 enrollment data by institution, by gender, and by full-and-part-time status. Part II displays enrollments for the 1999-2000 academic year by institution, by age distribution, by gender, and by full and part-time status at the undergraduate, graduate, and first professional levels. Part III displays enrollments for the 1999-2000 academic year by institution, by gender, by racial/ethnic category, and by full and part-time status at the undergraduate and graduate levels. A summary of totals for each institution as well as a total for all institutions is included. During the 1999-2000 academic year 23,183 men and 34,462 women, for a total of 57,645 students, were enrolled in Maine’s public and private colleges and universities.
The second document provides postsecondary completion data for awards/degrees conferred between July 1, 1998 and June 30, 1999 by each of Maine’s public and private colleges and universities. The data is displayed as it relates to each of ten (10) award levels by gender, by racial/ethnic category, and by combined totals. The data for each award level is also displayed by Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) codes. The summary of awards/degrees totaled by award levels and by CIP codes provides an indication of interest by program areas - what has been most sought and what has not.
The third document provides institutional characteristics unique to each of Maine's public and private colleges and universities. Important telephone numbers, website addresses,
national and regional accreditation information, tuition and fees, enrollment and awards data, and financial aid information are provided for each institution.
As you and your staff work to prepare Maine youth for the future, it is hoped that these documents will prove helpful to your efforts.
