Florida State Board of Community Colleges, Tallahassee.
Focusing on the period from 1990 to 1992, this articulation report provides information on students enrolled in Florida's State University System (SUS) who, prior to enrolling in their respective universities, attended one of Florida's 28 public community colleges. Following an overview of articulation in Florida, a series of 15 tables are provided, presenting information on students' gender, race, age, date of entry into the SUS, hours of credit transferred, and hours of credit earned at the university; the SUS enrollment rate of former community college students; grade point averages (GPA's); student majors; comparisons of the SUS performance of transfers based on semester hours earned at the two-year college; and comparisons of the performance of associate of arts graduates in the SUS with native SUS students. Highlighted findings include the following: (1) in fall 1992, there were 70,441 former community college students in the SUS, an increase of over 5% compared to 1990; (2) during each year from 1990 through 1992, female students comprised 56% of the two-year college transfers to the SUS; (3) for the same period, the percentage of White student transfers to the SUS decreased by 1.7%, while the percentage of Black, Hispanic, and Asian students increased by 0.9%, 0.4%, and 0.4%, respectively; (4) 84.4% of the 1992 transfer students had accumulated 60 semester hours or more upon entering the SUS; and (5) in fall 1992, 69.5% of the transfer students earned a GPA of 2.5 or higher while enrolled in the SUS, up from 68.2% in fall 1990.
