Abstract: The study analyzed the sociodemographic characteristics of the telecourse students in the North Carolina Community College System and compared these findings with the results from a 1984 study. In addition, the study analyzed possible relationships between student support services and student completion rates and measures of student success. A total of 25 administrators, 71 faculty, and 741 students responded to the three interrelated surveys. Additional data on enrollment statistics was supplied by the Department of Community Colleges. Nominal data was reported as percentages while Pearson correlations were calculated for interval data. Although the results for part one showed many similarities with the 1984 study, the present sample is younger, has more female students, is working less, and has a higher level of education.
