College-Going Rates in California: Fall 1978 Update.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The second annual report on college-going rates for recent graduates in public and private California high schools who were 19 or less when they enrolled as first-time freshmen in Fall 1974 through 1978 is presented. Changes in rates for men and women enrolled in each segment of California higher education from each country and statewide are documented. There was a net decline in the overall college-going rate found for Fall 1978, which placed it below the rates for 1975 and 1977 but above those for 1974 and 1976. The rates for the University of California and the California State University and Colleges in 1978 were the highest for the five-year period of study, but the community college rate was the second lowest for the period. The net decline in the rate for women was less than for men, with the State University showing a comparatively large gain for women. The college-going rate does not include students enrolling in private institutions that do not grant degrees or institutions that do not have regional accreditation. Information on students who transferred from and to California institutions is also included. (SW)
