INTRODUCTION



This is the third annual enrollment report published by the Board of

Control. It includes basic data, comparisons, and interpretations.

Basic data have been collected from each institution of higher learn-

ing in Florida. All the institutions have reported on-campus and off-

campus enrollments as well as the number of first-time-in-college and

terminal students by sex. Total on campus college-grade enrollments,

first-time-in-college enrollments, and graduate enrollments were reported

by state of origin of the students, and by county of origin in the case

of Florida students.

Slight changes in definition of some of the terms used have been

made this year. The major change in definition is that "college-grade

enrollment" means "enrollment in one or more courses for credit" rather

than "only those students who were enrolled in one or more courses that

were creditable toward a degree," the definition used in former reports.

In this report, figures for previous years have been adjusted to conform

to the revised definition where possible when comparisons are made with

1959 figures.

This report begins with a brief summary of the principal findings

relating to the enrollment of students in Florida's institutions of higher

learning. A section of the report then discusses changes which have taken

place in the characteristics of this enrollment since the fall of 1957,

the first period for which a report was published by the Board of Control.

Another part of the present report presents data on the total enrollment

of all the institutions for the fall of 1959. Tables and maps are in-

cluded which show the state or country of origin of out-of-state students


1 -










and the county of origin of Florida students. The number of Florida

students per 100 square miles of land area in each county has been deter-

mined in the same manner as it was for the fall of 1958, and comparisons

have been made between the two years.

Students attending college for the first time in Florida's colleges

and universities in the fall term 1959 are the subject of another section

of this enrollment report. Maps and tables present various kinds of data

relating to this segment of the enrollment. The number of first-time-in-

college students from each Florida county has been related to the number

of 1959 Florida public high school graduates from each county.

Some basic data relating to graduate enrollments in Florida's insti-

tutions of higher learning is presented in the next part of the report.

The last section is concerned with the areas served by each of the

State Universities and by the other types of institutions of higher

learning located within the State. An effort has been made to determine

the degree of attractiveness each institution or type of institution has

for students from each of the several counties. Maps are included which

show this kind of information for the total enrollment) the first-time-

in-college enrollment, and for the graduate enrollment.

Included as an appendix to this report is a brief study entitled,

"The Migration of College Students to and from Florida."

SUMMARY OF PRINCIPAL FINDINGS IN
ENROLLMENTS, FALL 1959



The total on-campus, college-grade enrollment in Florida's institu-

tions of higher learning in the fall of 1959 was 60,121. This is an

increase of 7.20 over the total one year earlier. Florida students

accounted for 82.7% of the total enrollment, and students attending

college for the first time amounted to 28.2% of the total.

Of the 49,714 Florida students attending Florida institutions of

higher learning, 32.3% of them came from the three lower east coast

counties Dade, Palm Beach, and Broward. Dade County alone accounted

for 23.9% of these students.

Almost four out of every ten students attending college in Florida

were women, and a little over four of each ten first-time-in-college

students were women. These ratios have remained almost constant during

the three years covered by the enrollment reports of the Board of Control.

In the fall of 1958 and again in 1959 the Florida first-time-in-

college students were divided almost exactly into thirds with approxi-

mately one third enrolled in the State Universities, another in the

community junior colleges, and the remaining one third in the private

institutions.

There were 3,8C6 graduate students enrolled in Florida's colleges

and universities. This was 6.3% of the total enrollment. While only

17.3% of the total enrollment of Florida's institutions of higher learn-

ing came from outside the State, 30.8% of the graduate students were non-

Florida students.

Students who live in the 26 counties served by the community junior

colleges are particularly attracted to these institutions. This report

3 -









shows that 75% of the first-time-in-college students from these 26 counties

were enrolled in community junior colleges, while only 80 of the first-

time-in-college students from the remaining 41 counties were attending

this type of institution.

While students from West Florida counties are not attracted to the

University of Florida in as high percentages as are those from other parts

of the State, they are attracted more to the Florida State University.

However, 22% of the 49,714 Florida students in Florida institutions were

enrolled in the University of Florida, while only 130 of them were en-

rolled in the Florida State University.

There were only eight counties in the State where the private col-

leges and universities attracted more than 38% of the students. These

were Dade, Orange, Duval, Polk, Pasco, Seminole, Hillsborough, and Osceola,

where the range was from 71% (Dade) to 38% (Osceola).

CHANGES IN COLLEGE-GRADE ENROLLMENT, FALL 1957 FALL 1959



The table on page 6 shows a total on-campus, college-grade enroll-

ment of 60,121 for fall 1959. This table breaks down the enrollment into

several segments and distributes it among the institutions in the Univer-

sity System and among the other types of institutions public junior

colleges, private degree-granting institutions, and private junior col-

leges. The table on page 7 compares the total on-campus, college-grade

enrollment for fall 1957 with fall 1958 and that for fall 1958 with fall

1959.

Fall 1959 Over Fall 1958 The grand total on-campus, college-grade

enrollment of all Florida colleges and universities was 4,039 higher for

the fall term 1959 than it was one year earlier. Of this increased

number of students, 1,394 were in the community junior colleges, 1,215

were in private degree-granting institutions, 1,144 were in the State

University System, and 286 were in the private junior colleges.

Even though the private junior colleges accounted for the smallest

numerical increase, this category of institutions had the greatest per-

centage of increase (15.5%). If the enrollment of the one new institu-

tion in this category (115 students at St. Leo College) had been excluded,

the increase would have been 9.3%.

The public community junior colleges had the largest numerical

increase in enrollment and the second largest percentage of increase.

One new institution in this cateogry (Suwannee River Junior College at

Madison) opened fall term 1959 with an enrollment of 60 students. Exclud-

ing the enrollment of this institution, the increase of the public

community junior colleges was 13.9%.

NOTE: Students enrolled in terminal programs are included in the above figures. Where figures
for prior years differ from those given in prior enrollment reports, terminal enrollments
have been omitted from the totals in prior reports but included here.










The increase in enrollment of the private degree-granting institu-

tions was slightly higher, both percentage-wise and numerically, than was

the increase in the enrollment in the State University System.

Fall 1959 Over Fall 1957 Whereas there was an increase in enroll-

ment of 4,039 students between fall term 1959 and fall term 1958, the

increase of fall term 1958 was 5,796 over fall 1957. Thus the total

increase between fall 1957 and fall 1959 was 9,845 students. Only two

institutions in the State have enrollments which exceed the number of

students gained in the two-year period.

The percentage of increase in enrollment in all of the Florida insti-

tutions of higher learning was less (7.2') between fall 1958 and fall

1959 than it was between fall 1957 and fall 1958 (11.5%). However, in

the fall term 1958 nine new community junior colleges opened their doors

with a total enrollment of 2,318 students, whereas there were only two

new institutions fall term 1959 (as noted above) with a total enrollment

of 175.

Distribution of Enrollment by Type of Institution The results of

differing rates of growth among the several types of institutions are

indicated in the percentage distribution of enrollments among these cate-

gories of institutions. Since the fall term 1957 the State University

System and the private degree-granting institutions have enrolled slightly

smaller percentages of the total enrollment each year, while the community

junior colleges and the private junior colleges have enrolled correspond-

ingly larger percentages.

the rate of increase for first-time-in-college enrollments (22.4%) ex-

ceeded the rate of increase for total enrollments (11.2%). However, this

situation was reversed between fall 1958 and fall 1959 when the corres-

ponding figures are 4.6% and 7.2%. In the fall of 1959, 28.2% of the

total enrollment was comprised of students who were attending college for

the first time. This percentage is midway between the corresponding

figures for fall terms 1957 and 1958.

Enrollment changes relating to first-time-in-college students appear

to be closely related to the opening of new institutions in communities

in which they have not previously been available.

Pages 43 through 61 show data relating to the place of residence of

fall 1959 first-time-in-college students. The number of Florida first-

time-in-college students is related, county by county, to the number of

high school graduates.

Enrollment of Non-Florida Students1 While there has been very little

change over the last three years in the percentage that Non-Florida stu-

dents are of the total enrollment in Florida's colleges and universities

there may be some slight indication of a decrease in the percentage that

out-of-state students are of the total enrollment. Data for the last

two years, however, show a slight change (from 17.2 to 17.9o1) in the per-

centage that non-Florida first-time-in-college students are of the total

number of such students in Florida institutions.

The Female Component of the On-Campus, College-Grade Enrollment For

the second year in a row women have constituted a very slightly larger

percentage of the total enrollment in Florida's institutions of higher

learning. Furthermore the slight decline in the female component of

the first-time-in-college enrollment that was noted between fall 1957

and fall 1958 has been offset in the change between fall 1958 and fall

1959.

5,527), these enrollments decreased 33.8% (5,527 to 3,661) between fall

1958 and fall 1959.

Between the last two years, extension enrollments in the private

degree-granting institutions decreased 2.1% (971 to 951). The bulk of

the decrease occurred at the University of Florida with a drop of 62.2/

(3,374 to 1,277). These decreases were offset, in part, by an increase
in extension enrollment from 825 to 1,043 (26.4%) at the Florida State

University and by an increase from 357 to 399 (2.9o) at the Florida A. &

M. University.

DENSITY OF COLLEGE STUDENT POPULATION



In the Board of Control enrollment report for the fall of 1958 the

density of the Florida college student population in Florida institu-

tions of higher learning was indicated by the number of students per

100 square miles of land area for each of the counties. The figures

ranged from 2 in Glades County to 1,435 in Pinellas County. There were

83 students per 100 square miles for the State as a whole.

In the fall of 1959 the range was from 2 in Glades County to 1,735

in Pinellas County, and there were 92 students per 100 square miles for

the State as a whole. In 8 counties the figures remained the same.

There were increases in 41 of the 67 counties and the greatest increase

was in Pinellas County. There were also large increases in Orange (205

to 274), Dade (523 to 580), Hillsborough (284 to 325), Broward (133 to

165), and Escambia (299 to 326) Counties. Decreases occurred in 18

counties, but the only decrease of any significance was in Manatee

County (127 to 102), where it has been determined that the change was

due to a decrease in part-time students in evening classes at the

Manatee Junior College.

FIRST-TIME-IN-COLLEGE ENROLLMENT



Florida's colleges and universities enrolled in the fall of 1959 a

total of 60,121 on-campus, college-grade students. Of these students,

16,974 (28.2%) were enrolled in college for the first time. Of the

16,974 first-time-in-college students, 13,929 (82.1%) were from Florida.

The table on pages 47 through 49 show these Florida first-time-in-college

students by county of origin for each of the State Universities and for

the remaining institutions by type. Totals for each county are shown in

the table and on the map on page 50.

In the spring of 1959 there were 32,051 students who were graduated

from the public high schools in the State of Florida, according to

statistics compiled by the State Department of Education. The number

from each of the several counties is shown on the map on page 51. The

percentage that the number of first-time-in-college students was of the

number of high school graduates in each county in the State is shown on

the map on page 52. For the State as a whole the ratio was 43.5%. How-

ever, for the fall of 1958 the corresponding ratio was 48.8%. Factors

contributing to the decrease in this ratio have not been identified, and

available data are insufficient to indicate a trend at this time.

The maps on pages 53 through 58 show the Florida first-time-in-

college enrollment by counties for the State Universities and for the

other institutions by type. The table on pages 59 and 60 show the out-

of-state first-time-in-college enrollment by state of origin for each of

the State Universities and for the remaining colleges and universities

by type. Totals for each state are included in the table and are also

shown on the map on page 61.

Percentage distributions by type of institution of the first-time-

in-college enrollments are shown in the following tables:

An examination of the above tables will show the impact of the

opening of the nine new community junior colleges in the fall of 1958.

Twenty-six counties (Bay, Calhoun, Citrus, Clay, Escambia, Flagler,

Gulf, Hamilton, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Lafayette, Levy, Madison,

Manatee, Marion, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Putnam, St. Johns, Santa Rosa,

Sarasota, Suwannee, Taylor, Volusia, and Washington) are considered by

the State Department of Education to be within areas served by the com-

munity junior colleges. No new counties were added in the fall of 1959

to the areas already served, as the only new community junior college

which opened at that time was in a county already among the 26 (Madison).

Of the first-time-in-college students enrolled in Florida institu-

tions in the fall of 1959 who came from the 26 counties mentioned above,

75% were attending community junior colleges, 18% were attending the

State Universities, and 7% were attending private institutions. This

is exactly the same percentage distribution that occurred in the fall

of 1958. Of the first-time-in-college students who came from the re-

maining 41 counties, 48% were enrolled in private institutions, 44%

were enrolled in the State University System, and 8% were enrolled in

the community junior colleges. In the fall of 1959 the community junior

colleges gained the 3% which was lost by the private institutions, while

the percentage enrolled in the University System remained the same as

it was one year earlier.

In the fall of 1959, 37% of the Florida first-time-in-college

students came from the 26 counties in the community junior college

attendance areas, while these counties had only 31% of the 1959 public

high school graduates in the State.




45 -









The number of first-time-in-college students from the junior

college attendance areas was 52o of the number of 1959 public high

school graduates from the counties in those areas, whereas the com-

parable figure for the remaining 41 counties was 40%. For the State

as a whole, the first-time-in-college students was 43.5% of the number

of 1959 public high school graduates.

GRADUATE STUDENT ENROLLMENT IN FLORIDA'S
INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING


Basic statistics relating to the graduate student enrollment in

Florida's colleges and universities have been gathered for the first

time by the Board of Control for inclusion in this report. It is

planned to include graduate enrollment statistics in future annual

enrollment reports.

There are graduate programs in each of the State Universities and

in three private institutions (the University of Miami, Stetson Univer-

sity, and Barry College). Cut-of-state graduate enrollments of each

are shown by state, and those from Florida are shown by county.

In the fall of 1959 there were 3,806 graduate students enrolled

in Florida institutions. Of these, 2,625, or 69%, were in the State

Universities; and 1,181, or 31%, were in the private institutions.

There were 1,215, or 31.9%, enrolled in graduate programs at the Univer-

sity of Florida, while 1,194, or 31.4% of the total, were enrolled in

such programs at the Florida State University. The University of Miami

enrolled 25.5% (971) of the graduate students attending Florida insti-

tutions.

Of the 2,634 Florida graduate students enrolled in Florida institu-

tions in the fall of 1959, 59% (1,544) of them were in the State Uni-

versities, and 41% (1,090) were attending private institutions. The

University of Florida enrolled 27% (709) of these graduate students,

and the Florida State University enrolled 24% (635). However, the

University of Miami enrolled more of the Florida graduate students (890

or 34%) than did either of these two State Universities.

AREAS SERVED BY FLORIDA INSTITUTIONS
OF HIGHER LEARNING



The maps on the following pages are designed to show the varying

levels of attraction which selected institutions and types of institu-

tions have for Florida students attending college in Florida.

The first of these maps shows that 20,288, or 41%, of the 49,714

Florida students attending college in the State were enrolled in the

State University System for the fall 1959 term. It shows that 98% of

the Leon County students who were enrolled in Florida institutions for

the fall 1959 term were enrolled in the institutions which comprise the

State University System. The applicable percentages are shown for each

of the other 66 counties.

The next map shows that 4,759, or 34%, of the 13,929 Florida first-

time-in-college students in Florida institutions were enrolled in the

State University System in the fall of 1959. It is shown that 91% of

the Leon County first-time-in-college students were enrolled in the

State Universities. The applicable percentages for the remaining

counties are also shown.

Following these maps are similar maps for other selected institu-

tions and types of institutions. Also included for the University of

Florida and the Florida State University are maps showing the varying

degrees of attractiveness each has for the graduate students from the

several counties in the State. In each case the percentage that the

enrollment (or type of enrollment) of the institution (or type of insti-

tution) is to the total enrollment (or type of enrollment) of Florida

students attending college in the State is used as the base to identify

the counties from which students are attracted to that institution (or

type of institution).

APPENDIX


THE MIGRATION OF COLLEGE STUDENTS TO AND FROM FLORIDA



Over the years the number of Florida students who left the State

to attend college has been greater than the number of out-of-state

students who have come into institutions of higher learning in Florida.

While data relating to the migration of college students are not

available for each year, the studies which have been made at intervals

consistently show that Florida has had a net out-migration of college

students. The United States Office of Education and its predecessor

organizations have made migration studies for the years 1930-31,

1938-39, and 1949-50.1 For the first of these years 24 students left

Florida to attend college for every 10 who came into the State. During

the year 1938-39, there were 29 Florida students attending institutions

outside their home state for every 10 non-Florida students enrolled in

Florida institutions. In 1949-50 there were 15 students who left

Florida to attend college for every 10 students who came into the State.

More recently the American Association of Collegiate Registrars

and Admissions Officers made a migration study for fall term 1958.2

This study shows that there were 14 Florida students enrolled in out-

of-state institutions for every 10 students who came to Florida insti-

tutions from elsewhere in the United States or from foreign countries.

The principal data relative to the migration of college students

to and from Florida are summarized in Table No. 1.

All Students in All Institutions

The net result, numberwise, of the migration of college students

to and from Florida during the fall term 1958 was a lightening of the

demands upon the institutions of higher learning that were located in

Florida. There were 55,266 students enrolled in Florida institutions,

but there were 4,151 or a total of 59,417 college students in the

United States who gave Florida home addresses. The number of students

enrolled in Florida institutions was 93% of the total number of Florida

students who were attending college throughout the United States.

About one of every four Florida college students (24% or 14,115

students) left Florida to attend college, whereas for the nation as a

whole the figure was nearly one in five (191). Florida ranked 37th

among the states in the percentage of college students remaining within

the state to attend college fall term 1958.

While Florida students were attending college in 49 of the present

50 states, 60% of the Florida students who left the State were attend-

ing institutions that were located in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee,

North Carolina, New York, South Carolina, Virginia, and Louisiana. In

each of sixteen other states there were enrolled more than one hundred

Florida students.

On the other hand, 9,964 or 18o of the students attending college

in Florida were students whose homes were elsewhere in the United States

(8,947) or in foreign countries (1,017).

Students had come into Florida from all of the states in the union.

Sixty percent of those students who came from other parts of the United

States came from seven states, viz., New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,




90 -









Georgia, Illinois, Ohio, and Massachusetts. Each of fifteen other states

had more than one hundred students enrolled in colleges or universities

in Florida.

The exchange of students with other parts of the nation, as shown

in Table No. 2 and on the map which follows, resulted in a net out-

migration from Florida of 5,168 students. Thus, for every ten students

who left Florida to attend college fall term 1958 only six students

came to Florida institutions from elsewhere in the United States.

The exchange of students between Florida and each of the other

states resulted in either a net out-migration or a net in-migration of

fewer than one hundred students in all but five cases. For five states,

viz., New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois, the ex-

change resulted in an average net in-migration of 491 students per

state. For every three students who left Florida to attend institu-

tions in this group of states, seven students came into Florida

institutions from those states.

On the other hand, the exchange of students between Florida and

each of fourteen states resulted in the net out-migration of more than

one hundred students. For five states, viz., Georgia, Alabama,

Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina, there was an average

net out-migration of 1,024 students per state; and for every four

students who came into Florida from this group of states, seventeen

students left Florida to attend college there.

In addition to the students who came into Florida from other parts

of the nation, there were 1,017 students who came into Florida from

other countries. No data are available to indicate the number of

Florida students who may have been enrolled in foreign institutions of
