Report of Trends in Enrollment of Transfers: New Jersey Public Institutions, 1987-1989. Part I.
New Jersey State Dept. of Higher Education, Trenton.
Designed to examine New Jersey's articulation policy for two- and four-year public institutions, this report by the Transfer Advisory Board (TAB) analyzes longitudinal transfer data gathered from the state's public universities, state colleges, and community colleges for 1987 through 1989. Following a brief introduction, the first part of the report presents a historical overview of statewide articulation efforts, highlighting particularly the Full-Faith-and-Credit policy established in 1973 and updated in 1983. A description is also provided of the creation and role of TAB, a board comprised of representatives from the state colleges, community colleges, and business and industry, responsible for monitoring and addressing the major issues and concerns of the articulation process. In the next sections of the report, data are analyzed for "receiving" and "sending" institutions. Selected findings include the following: (1) transfer students comprised one-third of the new degree-seeking undergraduates (NDSU's) at New Jersey senior public institutions in 1988, and 37% in 1989; (2) in 1988, New Jersey community colleges contributed 46% of the transfers (n=3,491), as compared to 43% (n=3,676) in 1989; and (3) in 1988, the public universities enrolled 41% of the total NDSU's and 37% of all transfers to state's public senior institutions; and (4) for both years, 43% of the NDSU's attending the New Jersey Institute of Technology were transfer students; and (5) in 1989, the state colleges enrolled 63% of all NDSU's and 59% of all transfers entering the New Jersey senior public system. The report concludes with recommendations related to the articulation policy and information-gathering techniques. (JMC)
