Access in a Broader Context: College-Going Rates in California.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
College-going rates of California high school graduates were computed from 1974-77 for the California public college system and for the fall of 1977 for a sample of California independent colleges and universities. A second focus of the analysis is the flow of transfer students from community colleges to the university and the state university. The analysis is limited to trends in the flow of students and to the relationship between that flow and the proximity of a university or state university campus. The flow of state student aid funds to students residing in the various counties in 1977 was also assessed. No decline was found in the college-going rate of recent high school graduates; the rate of attendance in California schools for those aged 19 and under is about 60 percent. Proximity to a campus of the University of California or the California State University and Colleges appears to be a significant determiner of whether a high school graduate will enroll at one of these campuses. Proximity to a four-year college campus appears to be an important factor in community college student transfer particularly in the state university system. Study findings and information about California colleges and universities are included in the appendices. (SW)
