TRANSFER FROM JUNIOR TO SENIOR COLLEGE, A SURVEY OF CURRENT POLICIES.
WHITE, JAMES H.
IN ORDER TO ASSIST TRANSFER STUDENTS WITH THEIR EDUCATIONAL PLANNING, A SURVEY OF 166 SELECTED ACCREDITED 4-YEAR INSTITUTIONS WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE PREVALENCE OF VARIOUS TRANSFER POLICIES. DATA ARE CLASSIFIED ACCORDING TO REGION, CONTROL, TYPE, AND ENROLLMENT SIZE. A MAJOR VARIABLE IN TRANSFER POLICY IS THE JUNIOR COLLEGE GRADE POINT AVERAGE. ONLY FIVE INSTITUTIONS ACCEPT A TRANSFER GPA OF LESS THAN 2.0 (ON A 4-POINT SCALE), WHILE 87 REQUIRE A 2.0 AVERAGE AND 32 REQUIRE A 3.0 RECORD. SIXTY PERCENT OF THE INSTITUTIONS REQUIRE LESS THAN A 2.5 GPA FOR ADMISSION. THE HIGH SCHOOL RECORD IS A POTENTIAL BAR TO TRANSFER IN FEWER THAN 20 PERCENT OF THE COLLEGES SURVEYED. ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS ARE REQUIRED BY 40 PERCENT OF THE INSTITUTIONS, ARE DEPENDENT ON THE QUALITY OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE RECORD IN 10 PERCENT OF THE CASES, AND ARE NOT REQUIRED BY THE REMAINING 50 PERCENT. ADVANCED STANDING CREDIT OF 2-YEAR EQUIVALENCY IS GRANTED BY 61 PERCENT OF THE COLLEGES. FINALLY, THE ANNUAL EXPENSE TO STUDENTS IN 68 PERCENT OF THE CASES EXCEEDS $2,000, INDICATING THE NEED FOR FINANCIAL AID FOR A LARGE PROPORTION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS. AVAILABILITY OF FINANCIAL AID IS SUMMARIZED BY PERCENTAGE OF INSTITUTIONS OFFERING VARIOUS TYPES OF AID TO TRANSFERS. (AL)
