Focusing on data from 1991 to 1993, this articulation report provides information on students enrolled in Florida's State University System (SUS). Prior to enrolling in their respective universities, these students attended one of Florida's 28 public community colleges. Following an overview of articulation in Florida, 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 1993, there were 73,021 former community college students in the SUS, an increase of over 8% from 1991; (2) from 1991 through 1993, the percentage of these former community college students who were female remained constant at 56%; (3) for the same period, the percentage of White student transfers to the SUS decreased by 2%, while the percentage of Black, Hispanic, and Asian students increased by 1.4%, 0.6%, and 0.2%, respectively; (4) 83.7% of the 1993 transfer students had accumulated 60 semester hours or more upon entering the SUS; and (5) in fall 1993, 70.3% of the transfer students earned a GPA of 2.5 or higher while enrolled in the SUS, up from 69.4% in fall 1991.
