[Short for coeducational.]
Usage Note: Although as a noun coed once referred to male and female students at a college, the word now refers primarily to young women who attend a coeducational college or university. Because there is no separate word for male college students, and the word carries a connotation of frivolity, the term coed is often considered derogatory.
