TRANSFER STUDY.
GREIVE, DONALD E.
THIS 1967 STUDY AT LORAIN COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE (LCCC) WAS UNDERTAKEN TO DISCOVER (1) THE PERCENTAGE OF CREDIT HOURS IN A UNIVERSITY PARALLEL PROGRAM ACCEPTED BY TRANSFER INSTITUTIONS, (2) THE STUDENT'S GPA BEFORE AND AFTER TRANSFER, AND (3) HOW MANY COLLEGES ACCEPTED LCCC'S TRANSFERS. INSTITUTIONS TO WHICH LCCC STUDENTS HAD HAD THEIR TRANSCRIPTS SENT RECEIVED FOLLOW-UP FORMS REQUESTING (1) DATA ON NUMBERS OF CREDITS ACCEPTABLE TO THE RECEIVING INSTITUTION, (2) REASONS FOR ANY NOT ACCEPTABLE, AND (3) THE STUDENT'S TRANSCRIPT AT THE END OF HIS FIRST TERM. SEPARATE COMPARISONS WERE MADE FOR THOSE WHO HAD COMPLETED (1) GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS, (2) 30 OR MORE CREDIT HOURS, AND (3) SEVEN TO 29 SEMESTER HOURS. TO PREVENT DISTORTION, THE COMPUTATION EXCLUDED THOSE WITH FEWER THAN SEVEN HOURS. STATE UNIVERSITIES WERE CONSIDERED IN ONE GROUP, THE REST (IN OR OUT OF OHIO, PUBLIC OR PRIVATE), IN ANOTHER. FORTY-SEVEN INSTITUTIONS SENT DATA ON 76 LCCC STUDENTS. SOME REPORTED BOTH CREDITS TRANSFERRED AND GPA, OTHERS REPORTED ONLY THE TRANSFER CREDITS. TABLES SHOW THE VARIOUS FINDINGS, IN PERCENTAGES AND IN ABSOLUTE FIGURES. THE CONCLUSIONS ARE THAT LCCC STUDENTS CAN TRANSFER SUCCESSFULLY TO BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE COLLEGES IN OHIO AND ELSEWHERE IN THE NATION. OF THEIR ELIGIBLE WORK, 99.35 PERCENT WAS ACCEPTED. A COMPARISON OF THE GPA'S SHOWS THAT LCCC STUDENTS DO SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE AFTER TRANSFER. (HH)
