Fall 1975 Entering Students at the End of Their Sixth Semester. Fall 1975 Through Spring 1978: Third Report. Report No. 43, Student Flow Project.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
In an extensive student progression report, six semesters of student flow data are summarized for 6,577 new and 2,402 transfer students who entered the Hawaii community colleges in fall 1975. Continuation rates, full-time rates, credit-completion rates (CCR), changes of major, and graduates are analyzed by semester in terms of entering status by sex, college campus, and program. In the sixth semester, the total community college continuation rates were 24% for new students and 15% for transfer students; higher continuation rates were also noted for males (25% compared to 22% for new female students; 17% vs. 13% for transfer students) and vocational majors (30% compared to 22% for liberal arts majors, and 6% for unclassified students). Graduation rates were 15% for new students and 16% for transfer students with females and vocational education majors having higher rates in both groups. CCRs were higher for transfer students, females and vocational education majors. Changes in major were seen in 20% of the entering new students and 16% of entering transfer students; males were slightly under-represented in this category. An extensive appendix includes detailed tables for the community colleges as a whole and for each of the seven campuses. (MB)
