The Academic Performance of Missouri Community College Transfer Students at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
Tippin, Keener A.
Information is provided on the academic performance of Missouri community college students who transferred to the University of Missouri, Columbia (UMC), for the fall 1979 semester. The data are organized according to the college from which students transferred, the UMC department which they entered, student transfer grade point average (GPA) and UMC GPA, and the number of semester hours transferred to UMC. The bulk of the report consists of tables which cover: (1) academic entry patterns, i.e., the number of students entering an academic unit and the proportion entering with an associate degree; (2) the number of students earning a GPA of at least 3.00 at UMC; (3) admission status, graduation, and retention data on students from each of 20 unidentified colleges; (4) transfer GPA and UMC GPA; (5) GPA by transfer hours category and by college; (6) GPA's of students transferring into each of 11 colleges or departments by community college of origin; (7) number and proportion of students completing graduation requirements at UMC within four semesters of transferring; and (8) transfer GPA and UMC GPA for four semesters between fall 1979 and winter 1981. These data reveal that 288 students transferred to UMC from a community college in fall 1979, and 63 of these students had an associate degree. By winter 1981, 176 of these students were still enrolled. (HB)
