Interview and Questionnaire Follow-Up Study of L.A.C.C. Transfers Attending U.C.L.A., Spring, 1968.
Gold, Ben K.
This is a study of student opinion on the preparation at Los Angeles City College for transfer to the University of California at Los Angeles. Nine LACC counselors interviewed 58 transfer students; these same students plus 101 others also answered a questionnaire. Most of those interviewed had been at the University less than a year; those reached by mail had been there longer. Tables show student replies by sex, age, date of University entrance, class (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, graduate), number of semesters completed, units completed, GPA at LACC and at UCLA, college enrolled in at UCLA, extent of self-support at LACC and at UCLA, eligibility at UCLA directly from high school, high school from which graduated, major at UCLA, comparisons with 1959 and 1964 respondents, reasons for attending LACC, academic and/or social difficulties after transfer. The study also quotes sample student comments, favorable and unfavorable, on (1) quarter system at UCLA, (2) outstanding courses and instructors at LACC, (3) quality of LACC preparation for major, and (4) adequacy of LACC counseling service. The author recommends that LACC faculty and staff study these comments and consider appropriate action on valid criticisms and suggestions. (HH)
