Summary

This paper discusses enrollment projections and trends in public and private colleges and universities. (1) Total enrollment in higher education may reach 14 million by 1982 and 12 million of these will be in public institutions, almost a 100 percent increase since 1970. Enrollments in private institutions will probably increase by only 5 percent. (2) The trend toward enrollment in public institutions has accelerated from 50 percent in 1950 to 75 percent in 1970. (3) The peak number of college age youth will reach the campuses in the early 1980's. The numbers will drop after 1982. More than 85 percent of these students will be in public institutions. (4) With the increasing trend toward public higher education, private institutions are facing grave financial problems and will have to receive public assistance either directly or indirectly if they are to continue to function. (5) In both public and private institutions students will probably be asked to assume more of the financial burden by using deferred payment plans. (AF)
