Enrollment in diploma programs rose modestly in 1981 and then declined through to 1985 resulting in an overall decline of 11% during the period, most of which has occured in the past two years.
Enrollment of graduate students increased 36% during the seven year period with a major portion of the increase occuring since 1982.
