Abstract: The purpose of this study in support of a concept of academic planning was to review the overall enrollment patterns and to compare and contrast the profile characteristics of students who completed various formal programs of study at the University of Maine at Presque Isle for the years 1978-1988. A data-base was developed by hand searching and reviewing the files of all students who entered the university as either a degree seeking student or non-degree seeking student between 1978 and 1984 (N = 5115) and who left either successfully or unsuccessfully between 1978 and 1988. Twenty-one variables related to admission to the university, attendance at the university, and departure from the university were identified. The 21 variables became the basis for the development of the five profiles used in analysis, interpretation, and discussion of the data.
