2 Kinds of Part-Time Students


A <http://nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfo.asp?pubid=2007165>  report released
Wednesday by the U.S. Education Department provides a detailed look at the
characteristics of part-time college students - and most of the results
won't surprise those who work with these students. Compared to full-time
students, part timers are more likely to be older, female, Hispanic,
financially independent of their parents, first-generation college students,
and to lag in graduation and retention rates.

But if those findings won't shock anyone, the department statistics also
presented data that may challenge assumptions about part-time students.

About 25 percent of part-time students can be identified as those who
"looked like typical full-time students" - and by looked like, the report
was talking about demographics, not appearance. The characteristics: they
are 23 or younger, they are financially dependent on their parents and
receive parental help with college costs, and they received regular high
school diplomas. Compared to other part-time students, this group is more
likely to be white, to come from wealthy families, and to expect to
eventually earn an advanced degree. Compared to full-time students, this
group is more likely to be Hispanic, less likely to be black, and more
likely to come from families with college degrees.

In terms of enrollment patterns, part-time students are much more likely
than full-time students to attend community colleges - and to not ever
receive a degree. Those in the "looked like full-time student" category are
in the middle in terms of where they enroll.

Title:

Part-Time Undergraduates in Postsecondary Education: 2003-04


Description:

This report uses data from the 2003-04 National Postsecondary Student Aid
Study (NPSAS:2004) to profile part-time undergraduates enrolled in U.S.
postsecondary institutions in 2003-04. About 49 percent of undergraduates
were enrolled exclusively full time in the 2003-04 academic year, 35 percent
were enrolled exclusively part time, and 16 percent had mixed enrollment
intensity. Part-time undergraduates, especially exclusively part-time
students, were at a distinct disadvantage relative to those who were
enrolled full time: they came from minority and low-income family
backgrounds; they were not as well-prepared for college as their full-time
peers; they were highly concentrated in 2-year colleges and
nondegree/certificate programs; and many of them worked full time while
enrolled and were not enrolled continuously. Using longitudinal data from
the 1996/01 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:96/01),
the report also found that part-time enrollment was negatively associated
with persistence and degree completion six years after beginning
postsecondary education even after controlling for a wide range of factors
related to these outcomes. This was the case even for the group of students
with characteristics that fit the typical profile of a full-time student
(i.e., age 23 or younger, financially dependent on parents, graduated from
high school with a regular diploma, and received financial help from parents
to pay for postsecondary education). Regardless of whether they resembled
full-time students, part-time students (especially exclusively part-time
students) lagged behind their full-time peers in terms of their
postsecondary outcomes even after controlling for a variety of related
factors.

*	In recent years, one strategy discussed to combat excessive drinking
by students on Thursday nights has been to increase the number of classes
that meet on Fridays, particularly in the morning. New research
<http://munews.missouri.edu/NewsBureauSingleNews.cfm?newsid=15766>  from
psychology professors at the University of Missouri at Columbia backs the
strategy. The researchers tracked the drinking habits of 3,341undergraduates
and found that students who don't take classes Friday consume twice as much
alcohol on Thursday as those with early Friday classes.  Source:
