FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF GRADUATES OF ELEVEN PUBLIC COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN MARYLAND (CLASSES OF 1959 THROUGH 1963).
REESE, HAROLD D.
THE DATA IN THIS STUDY WERE COLLECTED FROM ELEVEN COMMUNITY COLLEGES, FROM THE 4-YEAR INSTITUTIONS TO WHICH THEIR GRADUATES TRANSFERRED, AND FROM THE 1744 GRADUATES THEMSELVES, 1296 OF WHOM HAD BEEN ENROLLED IN TRANSFER AND 448 IN OCCUPATIONAL CURRICULA. OF THE OCCUPATIONAL STUDENTS, 19 PERCENT LATER CHANGED GOALS AND CONTINUED AT A 4-YEAR INSTITUTION. TABLES SHOW, AMONG OTHER THINGS, PRESENT AND PROPOSED OCCUPATIONAL CURRICULA, THE NUMBER OF GRADUATES IN OCCUPATIONAL COURSES, HOW MANY STUDENTS CHANGED CURRICULUM AFTER TRANSFER, HOW MANY TRANSFERS RECEIVED THEIR BACHELOR'S DEGREE, THE LENGTH OF TIME THEY TOOK TO DO SO, THE CHANGES IN THEIR GRADE POINT AVERAGES, AND CREDIT HOURS LOST UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS. IT IS POINTED OUT THAT JUNIOR COLLEGE GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING STAFFS MUST BEAR IN MIND THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HIGH SCHOOLS SUPPLYING THE COLLEGE'S STUDENTS AS WELL AS THE UNIVERSITIES AND 4-YEAR COLLEGES ACCEPTING THEM, IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE THE PENALTIES IN TIME AND MONEY CAUSED BY LOSS OF CREDIT AFTER TRANSFER. A FURTHER FOLLOW-UP STUDY IS CONTEMPLATED ON THE 365 GRADUATES OF THE OCCUPATIONAL PROGRAMS AND THE NATURE OF THEIR EMPLOYMENT AFTER COMPLETING THE 2-YEAR DEGREE COURSE. (HH)
