A STUDY OF ENTERING TRANSFER STUDENTS, 1966.
LUCAS, JOHN A.
QUESTIONNAIRES FROM 572 OF 1,055 ENTERING TRANSFER STUDENTS WERE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE REASONS FOR SELECTING THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE, AND TO EVALUATE DISTINCTIVE FEATURES OF MARRIED AND UNMARRIED TRANSFER STUDENTS WITH RESPECT TO FORMER COLLEGE, CLASS RANK, IN-STATE OR OUT-OF-STATE RESIDENCE CLASSIFICATION, AND CURRICULAR PATTERNS. THE FIVE REASONS MOST FREQUENTLY GIVEN FOR TRANSFERRING WERE (1) SPECIAL CURRICULUMS AVAILABLE, (2) BETTER OVERALL UNIVERSITY STANDING, (3) BETTER ACTIVITY PROGRAMS AND SOCIAL CLIMATE, (4) BETTER LOCATION, AND (5) LOWER COST. REASONS FOR ENTRANCE BETWEEN TRANSFER STUDENTS AND ENTERING FRESHMEN DIFFERED MARKEDLY. BETTER FACULTY WAS LISTED BY 80 PERCENT OF ENTERING TRANSFER STUDENTS, BUT BY ONLY 29 PERCENT OF ENTERING FRESHMEN. CURRICULAR COMPARISONS SHOWED MALE TRANSFER STUDENTS PRINCIPALLY ENTERED SCHOOLS OF ENGINEERING, BUSINESS, AND BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES WHILE FEMALE TRANSFER STUDENTS ENTERED SCHOOLS OF EDUCATION, HOME ECONOMICS, AND ARTS AND HUMANITIES.
