  • Item 7: Ready or Not, Here They Come: Community College Enrollment Demand Projections, 2009–2019
    This is the first in a series of Ready or Not, Here They Come enrollment demand reports that will be developed over the next six months. Community college projections were derived first because the community college system is the largest in the state, accounting for 75% of undergraduate demand. The entire series, once completed, will be helpful to the Governor and Legislature in future budgetary and policy deliberations by providing projections of the demand for public undergraduate higher education and needs for campus lecture and laboratory capacity.
