Abstract:

In the paper the authors propose a planning and budget model that is based on flows, enrollments and unit costs of educating student cohorts dropouts and degree-winners at a large university. Using 1969-1970 data from the University of California and Stanford University and 1970-1971 data from the University of Colorado, the model is used to analyze the effects of a proposed Carnegie Commission recommendation that Lower Division programs be reduced from two years to one year. The authors obtain estimates of the changes in unit and total instructional costs as well as the new flow patterns and enrollment levels that will result if the plan is adopted in the long run.
